    Any way to make manual entry box larger?

    IMHO Hand edits will bite you someday. You should be able to post what your trying to add using toolpaths. The only thing we use that for is a M00 (move clamps).

    updating posts to 2020

    Any idea why when I convert my post the PST file shows as a red X? using migrate everything else seems fine. This happened on Every post we have.

    Strange mouse or video skipping MasterCAM 2018.

    I agree with the auto-save, I've had complaints of that here as well. "like every ten min my screen freezes!" lol auto save was set for 10 min. Not sure the frequency of the "MasterCam backup files" gets saved. but that may also dog it down.

    MC 2018 Wire ---- Why is this so hard?

    We set up a mill post just for wire and always program our wires using MasterCam Mill 2d (.010 tool 15" long, comp in control), We only use MasterCam Wire for 4 axis programs (I agree its not fun to use).

    Using Chamfer Tool as Spot Drill in FBM drill

    You could just rename your spot drill to "chamfer mill" and make it the same tool number as your chamfer mill. (just ignore the duplicate tool alert)

    backup copies

    I may be old school, I still manually save before verify, regen on large toolpaths, and now, before i print. But my autosave is set for 15min., there is another that saves inside C:\Users\"yourname"\Documents\my mcam2018\Parts If it's not in my autosave 90% chance its in the "Parts" folder.

    Hollow stock model, STL, imported mesh

    if my next op is on bottom, I set bottom as my WCS. leave the stl where it is. I've always has issues when rotating / translating stl files. Changing you WCS to the next op orientation is the key. I think my issue was the just size of the part.

    Drill point selection in 2020

    was it rotary work? if you have "filter out duplicate points" checked it will see the side opposite as duplicates and not use them.

    Highlighted fields

    Is there a way to make the highlighted field brighter/ more contrasting. ( i know it gets dark if you click on it ) when you go to Tools to see your selected tool, the highlight is barely noticeable, 2018

    Dynamic OptiRough

    Ditto, Always. A large expensive part isn't the place to be High feeding around a contour in a micro lift. Plus the Operators gonna need a pacemaker if you don't retract out.
