« on: August 17, 2008, 12:34:34 AM »
hi how is everyone doing.
I got this little problem with mach hopefully someone can tell me whats wrong?
I started mach loaded a program ran good. but then when I went into MDI for some reason
it will not let me type certain letters and numbers like I try to type M06 T1 and it would not
input nothing but if I type some other letter it would.
can some tell if I have modify something.

First off is this Mill or Turn? Second are you sure you typed a Zero and not the letter O?

What are you using Keygrabber with? What is the difference beween the two screens if any? Can you use KeyGrabber with the other profile to see if it changes things?

Josh, have you modified your screen set? If so, post it and I'll have a look. If not, post your xml of the profile your having trouble with.

No worries Josh, its easy to do. At the top of this reply there is a tab, reply. It takes you to the full reply page that is a little different than the quick reply at the bottom.  Once you clcik it you'll see the reply box and the words additional options listed just to the left below the box. Click on it and browse to you C:\Mach 3 folder. There you will find your screen set. I don't know if you have a custom or not but by your problems I think maybe you do. It will have the .set extension on it. If it is the default 1024.set you'll have to rename it before posting it.

Hope this helps,
Brett
