Hi Zax,

thanx for the new Version.
But i think i found a bug, i think so.
When i activate Sketch(filled) then use the text option.
Go back to the starting Screen, and click on the text, then
i get the no respond message and i have to start the Programm again.

Greetings
Thorsten

Thorsten, I am unable to replicate that problem.

Let me confirm the steps.

1. Select Sketch (Filled)
2. Start a new sketch
3. Type in the text
4. Click the gear icon to generate the G-Code
5. ?

The reported error comes from the serial port when sending G-Code.

Do you have CNC Mode (Z-Axis) enabled in settings?

I am thinking of adding an option to enable Z-Axis jog without using Z for the depth, but don't know if that is useful. It would be a hybrid mode, for a laser engraver with a Z-Axis to focus but the G-Code would still use S-values for power.

@Sir-James

Thorsten, I am sorry but I can't re-create this error. I'm confused when you say "clicking in the box with the text", if you've already exited the Sketch module and generated G-Code that wouldn't do anything as it becomes an image at that time (if using filled).

That's a yes, the CNC Mode box is ticked, I'm also getting some corrupt graphics in the laser control window sometimes, and the Transmit Progress window is greyed out.
When I select Laser Control, it opens, and then immediately collapses to the Task Bar, but opens ok from there

@BritVic

Please try v1.2d and see if that looks better.

You must have a different DPI setting in Windows that caused everything to be the wrong size and shift around.

Do you have Windows 10 or something else?

I've tested with Windows 7 and 10 but don't have access to anything else, and using Smaller (100%), Medium (125% default) and Large (150%) in the display settings.

It seems like Windows determines what is "Default" based on the resolution, my computers are running 1920 x 1080 so it decides 125% is good. At 100% I would need some new specs!

Anyone else see this behavior " immediately collapses to the Task Bar"?

I tell Windows to open the form at the center of the parent, but apparently it does what it wants  ???

I just tried some of the other options and center of screen seems to work better, especially on a dual screen setup where it otherwise seems to pick whichever screen I don't want it to open on.
