Screen 4 - What am I doing wrong
« on: December 10, 2008, 04:40:25 AM »
I have just moved my touch screen into the workshop and linked it up to Mach 3 - it's great.

I was altering some of the screens - basically to give bigger buttons for my numb fingers, and add jog buttons to the basic set and lset screens. I had a niggling thing happen - when I made an alteration to an icon, say an OEM code, or a picture size, when I pressed OK, the image jumped, usually about 2.5 inches to the left, sometimes, down the screen, and I had to search for it, then bring it back to it's correct position.

What am I doing wrong, or not doing ??? :-[

Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.

Actually from what I have found, Jim, you're not doing anything wrong at all, it's a weird occurance in Screen 4.

I have had things like this happen and sometimes they don't and I always use the same screen size so it's not a pixel issue.

Possibly someone else will have some info for you.

I just grin and bear it as it's a free program and works fairly well and is a godsend at times-  ;D

You need to open the screen set that you are working on in the highest resolution that will fit your screen with out scroll bars up/down or left/right.
Not sure why but it fixed the same thing for me.

I've tried that before as well and it doesn't seem to work on all systems   :-\

Another thing keep the bitmaps off as much as possible that helps to,  at least on my computer.
