CTRL-F in the preview window

Post by zmachine01 »

I use the preview window a lot for viewing text cnc programs. I use CTRL-F to search for text items and numbers in long programs. Does CTRL-F have a command number that I can bind to a button? Or is there a way to make it so the Find dialog box doesn't close automatically each time? Thanks

You have to click inside the PP before you can use CTRL+F there so you'd need an external tool (as always e.g. via AHK / AutoIt) that handles this stuff

I see. I was also just hoping that maybe the developer could make the Find box not disappear each time in a future release, similar to several nc code editors that I use. Thank you for the response

Well you could hack job it, something like this:

focus "PP"; sendkeys "{Tab}^f";
