Hi,
Mach3 - Metric

I would like to get the DRO to display only 2 decimal digits instead of the 4 there is now.
Can I alter the display in some editor?

To expand on ZA's answer, there is a program there called MachScreen which you can use to edit and create the screen set that Mach is using.  There is another edditor called Screen4 here: http://www.machsupport.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Screen4.zip  I think I have used Machscreen in the past and managed to do what I wanted (but it might have been Screen4).  You can create new DROs with various properties including number of digits displayed and I guess change the number of digits in existing displays.  It's a bit of a learning curve!

Downloaded Screen4 and figured out how to edit decimals.
Worked like a charm!
Thank you very much!
