Hi Gaston,

I'm thinking then it must stem to name length and when I compile it.
I will change that in the next release.
Thanks for finding that!

Hey Jason, please excuse my ignorance, but whats it for, and when would a person use it.
What is the purpose of an XML. This is an area I have never needed to deal with.
I suspect me not knowing will make me look stupid :)
The Pythagorean theorem: The sum of the areas of the two squares on the legs (a and b) equals the area of the square on the hypotenuse (c).     a² + b² = c².

No Benny that doesnt make you look stupid, that bloody hat and shades do ;D
 Sometimes its handy to be able to read the xml as it contains all of your setup data, usually you look at it in Internet explorer or such but dont think you can edit it from that, come to think of it not sure if you can edit in Jasons reader :D
 I often ask for people to attach their xml's to the forum so that I can see if I can find their problems, if I open it in a Mach profile then it will change some settings when I load, also it will create a macro folder on my drive and that can start to make things rather large in the Mach3 folder as I will have hundreds of macro folders.

Hey BEnny,

Yeah the XML's are the profile for Mach, they can be found most of the time in: C:\Mach3\MachMill.xml.

You can rename them and have different setups for your machine, maybe one for Lathe and another for MIll.

They also hold the location of the screen you've loaded as well they hold all of the stored setting and changes made.

Yes in this XML reader you can edit values and save them :) that is the big reason that I developed it...also it takes my quad core computer a good minute to open a XML in Note pad to make changes and then it looks like a mess.

Actually I had no idea on how many different setting there are in Mach, since they are organized  in this XML reader it is easy to find and see all Mach's available functions.

Try to drag one of your XML's into the reader you'll be amazed at all these hidden function Mach has :)

Jason,
Thanks so much. I have tried 5 or 6 XML editors while redoing my machine and Mach. This is the bomb, exactly what I was looking for. ;D
