Other Features
    Clicking the Right mouse button will turn off any CAD or Tool functions that are current.     You can have side by side editors and load separate files into each for comparison the two.     Alt-F2 key will shrink the scale of the plot window by half.     You can toggle between the last two zoom views in the plot window with the F2 key.     The Alt-F1 key will zoom to the extents of the CAD drawing.     View-Reset on the main menu will recalculate the extents of the CAD drawing, and reset the plotting variables.     Toolpath can be recorded and save to a CAD file.     You can make a filled in outline of the part and show the tool cutting it away. See SOLIDS in the help file.     You can record keystrokes in the editor and play them back to make repetitive editing easier.     You can save keystrokes in the editor to file and set a button on the TOOLBOX to play it back.     In the TOOLBOX window you can set buttons to play a keyboard macro file.     In the TOOLBOX window you can set buttons to run an editor script.     In the TOOLBOX window you can set buttons to perform various commands on the editor. Right click on a button in the Toolbox.     In the Find-Replace dialog box you can replace a string of characters with multiple lines of text.     The Find-Replace search normally does not search into comments in the NC program unless the "Include in Comments" box is checked.     You can search for the last Find string again by pressing F5.     Inplot will automatically save the last saved version of the editor file to a backup file with the extension ".bak" when Configuration-Editor-Save Backup Files is checked.     If you have programs that have numbers where decimal points are optional, you interpret them correctly by the format settings in Configuration-Format.     You can turn on and off the gutter in the editor for setting Breakpoints by the right mouse popup menu.     When printing the plot window, Inplot normally sends color information to the printer. If you prefer just black and white lines, you can check Configuration-Screen-Print Monochrome.     With "Mirror CAD for Lathe" checked in Configuration-Screen, you can draw only one half of the part and it will be automatically mirrored to fill in the other half of the part.     When plotting with a picture of a ball endmill, you may have to change Configuration- Screen-Plot Ball Mill to tip or center settings to look right in the Z depth.     The editor does not show going through the lines of a subprogram unless Configuration- Plotting-Step Subs is checked.     You can set the size of the edit window when Inplot starts in Configuration-Editor-Start Edit Window Size.     If the Rotary table moves around the wrong way, you show the opposite with Configuration-Axis-Reverse Rotation settings.     If you have trouble with Inplot finding some Syntax errors during plotting because of a non-standard format, it will help to turn off Configuration-Plotting-Check Syntax.     You can have Inplot ignore any line that starts with a certain character. This can help ignore things like filenames at the beginning of the program.     With Syntax Checking on, Inplot will report an error on lines that have multiple same addresses. Use Configuration-Syntax-Allow these to tell Inplot that these certain multiple addresses are OK.     Inplot can show you when you forgot to turn the spindle or coolant on by plotting in a different color. Turn this on in Configuration-Syntax-Warn.     Inplot can show you accidentally got a feedrate too fast by plotting in a different color when the feedrate is over a certain amount. Set in Configuration-Feedrates.     Inplot can calculate the running time of a program and display it in the program. And you can add more time for manual activities with a Comment Code.     You can make a new configuration file by just copying the machine INI file to a new name and loading it with the Formats dialog box.     You can get rid of toolbars you don't need by dragging them off the docking areas and pressing the exit button on it. When Configuration-Screen-Save Toolbar Positions is checked they won't appear when Inplot is started.     To change the sign of an address in the program use the Switch Address utility, put the same address in both boxes, and check Reverse Sign on the last one.     Most of the editor utilities operate on a selected block if any is selected, otherwise it starts operating from the cursor line to the end of file.     You can mirror the NC code by using the Switch XYZ dialog, but it's better if you can rotate it 180 degrees because then all the cuts will be going the same way instead of reverse.     You can shorten up some programs by using the Order NC utility to strip unneeded addresses. It checks for redundant values and deletes them.     You can put the name of the Cadl CAD file of the part in the program with the CDL Comment Code. This will automatically load the CAD file when you run the program.     You can Pan the CAD window by dragging with the middle mouse button, or by holding down the left mouse button and the control key.     You can dynamically rotate the view in the CAD window (when in a view other than top view) by holding down the Alt key and dragging with the left mouse button.     You can download the latest updates to the Inplot software at any time from the www.i- logic.com web site.     You can undo the last changes in the editor with Ctrl-Z     There are alternate Find and Replace Dialogs available with Cntl-F and Cntl-R keys.     You can stop the tool animation with Esc and get the coordinates at that point and insert them into the editor.     You can Merge other files into the editor at the cursor position by Dragging them from the File Explorer with holding down the Alt key     The last plotted move will flash on and off if 'Flash Path Element' is checked in Config- Screen     The default drawing depth in the views can be set by a right mouse click on the View Buttons.     You can use ALT-Down-Arrow key as an alterative to clicking the Step Button     Turning on Config-Screen-Flash Path Element will make the last tool path move flash on and off     If 'Subprograms' on Config-Plotting is checked the program will jump back to beginning of file when it hits M30.     You can find the number of lines and characters in the editor by pressing the Plot-Reset button and they will be displayed on the Status Bar Lathe Plotting Can be Shown in Horizontal or Vertical Position Tool Directory Animated Tool Path Plotting Merge Other Files Into Editor Save Plot Drawing to Geometry or Bitmap Print the CAD Drawing at a Certain Exact Scale Put the Addresses in a Particular Order Scale Up or Down Supports subprograms and Fanuc Macro Variables Plot Okuma twin-turret lathe programs Input Bolt Circle coordinates and angles Editor Functions Operate on the Whole File or a Highlighted Section Reverse the Order of the Lines in a Section of Editor Renumber – Any Address Change Values by Finding Values Instead of Strings
To update a Registered Installation For an already working installation:     Without un-installing, download and run the latest trial version installation. It will replace the executable and help file and leave the configuration files alone. If you need a new installation:     Install the latest trial download.
