That's great!

Not bad for laser software  ;D

Could you use the 5.5W as ON/OFF only, driven by the MOSFET? I'm not sure what the rating is, it's probably close but you could add a heatsink and fan to the board. I wouldn't suggest trying it with your new Mana SE board though.

You Sir are a smart man!

I already did exactly that and it works great.

P.S. at first I renamed it Load and Save, then changed it to Import and Export, but finally put it back as I would have to change every language - so it's still backup and restore.

Yes, I agree. That sounds like the best option.

The folder that ClickOnce uses is a mystery to me too but I'm glad you recovered them.

So basically my backup/restore is useless across updated since it won't find the previous versions backup. I guess I could save the file elsewhere but then I have to deal with user access / security issues. It may be easier to figure out what the previous folder is called and find my file that way.

At least the web deployed updates and roll-back feature in Microsoft ClickOnce works  :)

I always have silent mode on, no annoying messages  ;)

I turned it off, and you are correct the restore message was a copy/paste from the backup, doh!

It sounds like you tried to restore but the backup wasn't found, so now I'm wondering if ClickOnce keeps each version in a separate folder meaning your backup profiles wouldn't be found unless you copy the file - which kind of defeats the purpose.

So anyway, here's what they are supposed to do:

Backup Profiles = Copies the profiles to a .bak in the install folder
Restore Profiles = Copies the .bak version over the current profiles
Use Backup Profiles = Loads the .bak profiles file to memory
Reload Profiles = Loads the profiles file to memory

So using the last 2 allows you to double the amount of profiles available, but it is no longer a backup, more a 2nd set.

That's good news! If by "graphics in the frame" you mean my wallpaper splash screen, the default is random but you can set which one you want or disable them.

I don't understand how QtProgrammer has such a mess. I suspect his system isn't providing valid DPI values which are required to position and size the GUI objects.

I've been trying to replicate it by changing Windows settings but can't get anything close.

I just checked, the rollback works.

You should be able to rollback in the control panel, but I haven't tested it.

If you click to uninstall it's supposed to ask if you want to completely remove it or rollback.

I am not sure what changed though, the GUI wasn't modified between the 2 revisions and it looks correct on my tablet, laptop and desktop.

Do you have the custom buttons on or off?

Could you tell me what DPI and resolution you are using?

As an example, my laptop is 1920 x 1080 and uses 125% dpi (the dpi is used to calculate positions so I suspect that may be the problem, but why only now, I have no idea).

This would probably work: http://online.rapidresizer.com/tracer.php

I did a real quick test, DXF attached.

It's actually really easy, just select black/white mode and change the brightness to get just the line drawing. Then you can trace it, the only problem is using auto-trace (which is quick) you will get double lines as you said.

If you have Corel it supports center line tracing which does an excellent job, or you could try using Inkscape and then delete the extra lines.

I have tried to create a good centerline tracing result and it's not easy, you typically end up needing to make some edits so it's not really suited to T2Laser and should be done in a graphics program.

That worked pretty well considering you are using the standard firmware. I wonder how difficult it would be to make the changes to Grbl 1.1.

It looks like it's called a Polargraph or HangBot.
