Ignore Tool Change
« on: December 09, 2005, 09:19:32 AM »
I am using Mach3 and am a new user. When I go to settings and unmark ignore tool change, all is fine until I shutdown. How do I make this stay off everytime I start up.

please change the setting and exit Mach3. When you exit Mach 3 it should save the setting. The Exit needs to be done by closing the software not by powering down the computer.

Hope that helps

Been there, done that.
Change settings and go to file exit. Open back up and no save for settings. I am using Version R1.83.030

Could you send me your XML file and I will have a look at it. I have tested it here and it is working as it should... I am tinking you may have a bad XML.

Thank you

The XML is in the Mach3 directory and is going to be named Mach3Mill .xml if you are using mill. If you are using a lathe it will the the turn XML

You can send it to me a brianb@newfangledsolutions.com


Thanks

I think you my have to reinstall Mach3. I tested your XML here and it looked great! I have seen this problem  :o

Thank you and sorry the XML didn't do it
