Order of screens?
« on: May 17, 2008, 11:16:14 PM »
Is it possible to change the order of screens? In other words I'd like screen #3 to be the default screen when Mach 3 starts up. I use screen 4 to alter my own screens but I don't see an option for this and it would really be time consuming to "swap" screens around.

Anyone have an idea?

Thanks-
Dave

Actually wouldnt take any time at all to swap screens. In Screen 4, wiht your mouse select everything rom top right to lower left, goto Edit>cut (your cuttin out screen 1), then goto page 14 or so in screen 4, and paste it there. Then goto screen 3 Select all cut, and drop it on screen 1, you will note when you drop everything, you can Grap the whole selected giant square and drag it to correct position.

Another Option Is to put this macro in your "Initalize" box under general.

1).  open up Mach,
2). i.e. Under config>general put in the Initialize box "M900" (without the quotes).
3). then Operator>VB scripter
4). put this code in the VB script window.

'M900.m1s
DoOemButton(3)

5). Next do a save as, and call it M900 (make sure that it is saving to the correct macro folder that matches the profile you are running).
6). Close Mach and re-open and as it initializes, it will goto screen page 3

Thanks so much Scott. I actually tried the copy and paste but it made all my "clear" buttons solid black and I can't figure out why. I will try again and the macro to see if that would work for me as well. Appreciate your help!

Ok, redid the screens this morning and all I had to do to fix the solid black buttons was to copy and paste all the black buttons and they all copied to clear buttons again and then I deleted the black buttons. Must be a weird glitch when moving clear buttons with new screens.

Thanks again, Scott, your help is always appreciated-  :)
