    There are settings for that I think
  2. I was told once "metal is plastic" also true in it's way but I like the dirt analogy!!

    chain manager 2022

    Where in the holy heck is the display setting to turn on direction and machining side arrows in the chain manager. I can click away then click back on a chain and it pops up, but that will make me diabolically insane after a few more days.

    chain manager 2022

    On this one I call it Russian roulette, I prefer to see what side I am machining on. Call me picky but...... They call it the practice of medicine, but we machinists don't get that luxury.
  5. those are labeled DIALOG1, DIALOG2 ETC UP TO DIALOG8

    Found it!! Here is my 2021 config settings. 1 little checkbox. Now. my question is why would there even be an option to turn off display of those arrows???

    chain manager 2022

    I'm guessing it's something here?? I didn't migrate smoothly to 2022. I was able to copy over my config files so I am surprised this is so hard to see.

    Posting with Associativity Checking Off

    Sys config has a check box setting "suppress associativity warning messages" Bottom of the list, under toolpaths

    Level Subgroups

    Can you explain how this works or what it does for you?? "Level set Displays the level set value of the selected level. You can also edit the level set of the selected level by typing a different value in the field."

    Disappearing tool library

    Tool library is a body of work with high value. I always have multiple copies in multiple locations, I have done this since the beginning, even when I was the only one programming.

    You mean machines from the 21st Century?? lol

    Regen times skyrocked suddenly.

    I use cut tolerance to get the file to fit in the control. Not sure how all those guys not using are not using DNC.

    2D Pocket Helix/Ramp Entry Point Feature Request

    Sometimes it's about controlling an edge cut on brittle materials. Or maybe the pattern of the cut needs to be more squared off for the customer satisfaction. Maybe I don't want tool lift or higher feeds between stepovers. New is not always always better. Legacy paths are still valuable!! I would use 2d pocket more if I had that kind of start control. Actually being fairly new to MC less then 2 years, I was surprised this function was not already integrated. Machining close to 40 years here, programming for close to 30.

    Solid union

    It is on the solids tab

    flow line

    Can you make the flowline UV individually adjustable for each solid surface?? Copying surfaces to make flowline adjustments seems like the long way around. I don't have an issue seeing the lines, just with the way they point, when there is a conflict, which almost always, the toolpath fails.

    Screen back ground colors

    Been using MC for just over a year now. Way back in the last century, I was trained to not use a color that may be used as geometry for the background i.e. Black. Using a Gradient is always best because many items are using black as a display color. I don't care much about the color, I just adapt to the setting as sent. That said, I'm trying a darker background now. Not sure how I'll like it yet.

    Immediate Crash on start up

    Microsoft tried to hijack my documents to one drive, same thing happened. It boils down to the workspace file. Just replacing that with a backup copy might have been enough.

    Islands at end of dynamic toolpaths

    I adjust the cut width slightly
