    You could auto-fill it using windows with a hook or an application, but that goes for any window, and not easily done. Heck a smart enough guy might even get it done use vba in excel, since the windows api is available. Saying their is no method is misleading.

    Config gremlins reset my config.

    I keep copies of my workspace files on my backup drive and have copies of them named different extensions I can rename if needed. I keep zipped copies of my mastercam and shared mastercam, there were some other files than .config and .workspace that were causing crash on startup, we opted to backup the whole folder rather than further trace the issue,
  5. You have to change the cplane to front view, on the icon with the green arrows in the plane manager, there is a dropdown menu, select the cplane follows gview option, it will help.

    Ya do them as two separate toolpaths or reflow uv on one of the surfaces. I would take the opportunity and do reflow uv if you are in 2021

    The variable and function names used are very unclear. You probably won't encounter this very often if you haven't before, that being said, it might be a good idea to talk to the author about it.

    If you can duplicate this please send it to qc<at>Mastercam<dot>com with the step to reproduce this and a zip2go. If you can share it with me, I can look for short term workarounds while you wait for a fix.

    Not all values are stored as floating point types. You have the whole number types short - int - long - long long, which all store different sizes of numbers. Floating point numbers would typically be float(7 decimal places) or double(15 decimal places).

    So the lead in is the issue? If its set to pct maybe set it to a rounded value instead.
