Change "TAB" Hotkey
« on: March 02, 2008, 05:09:39 PM »
I'm currently running Mach3 with a touchscreen and wireless keypad.  Is there a way to change the default jog key (TAB) to the keypad decimal point (.)?

You should be able to make a new screen button and have the button set as OEM Code 50, then you can asign a hotkey for that.
Will go try it out but it should work

You use screen4, it may be in your Mach folder, if not its available on the downloads page. Its a great wee addition, lets you alter the standard screenset or even make up your own like many of us have done, see here http://www.artsoftcontrols.com/screens.htm
 I have added the button to this screen, its placed offscreen so you wont see it but it should work fine when you press the . key
Download the attached screenset and save it in your Mach 3 folder, then when you open Mach go to the View menu the load screen and browse to Mach3 folder and choose it.

Hood, works like a charm.
I didn't even know screen4 exist.  What a cool feature.

I tried making my own button with 0 width and 0 height offscreen.  It seems to work but the overall Mach screen got reduced depending on where I place my button.

Hi, JonnyD

Why not put it on the screen also, and set it for all screens ?

Thanks, Chip

If you dont want to have the button visible you could use an image button in screen4 but just dont asign an image to it, it will become an invisible button. I have one like that on my screen for clearing the ticker message :)
