(Mach3 Addons for Mill requires a licensed copy of Mach3 Release 1.0 or later.)

Do you have the Mach license ?  If so, are they BOTH in your Mach3 folder ?

You have to hit ENTER after every change that you make.

Thanks I have the addons working.I was clicking the save changes every time not enter...works much better.
now on the mach3 load wizard (not addons) I click on the text engraving and make the changes and looks good..butt how do you get it to post the gcode into the mach3 so you can run it?

You should NEVER feel stupid for asking questions....NOT asking is what's really stupid.
We're all in this together. Glad I could help out.
Good Luck to you Calvin,
