NC Plot v2 Beta 8 is now available for download.
New for Beta 8:
The plot controls are now all functional:
Animate - Draws the program with a settable delay between steps.
Pause - Halts the program animation. Press animate again to resume, or you can step forward / backward from the stopped point.
Step forward - Draws the next step in the program.
Step backward - Un-draws a step in the program.
Plot - Refreshes the viewport from the current contents of the program.
Plot to Cursor - Draws the program up to the line in the program that the cursor is on.
Plot from Cursor - Draws the program from the cursor location to the end of the program.
Pan and rotate are now dynamic. You can now also zoom / rotate / pan while stepping the program.
The highlight tool has been removed from the menu, this function is now always active. Left-clicking the viewport selects the nearest object and displays its properties in the status bar. This works OK for the top and bottom views, but it needs work yet for the other views.
Select All, Find Next and Replace have been added to the Edit menu.
I've added a popup menu to the program window. Right-click the program window for quick access to the Edit menu.
I've added a Draw menu item called Show Ticks. When enabled you will see small boxes marking the endpoint of rapid moves.
I reduced the size of the icons, I like the new smaller ones better.
I've also updated the Quick Start Manual. This can be accessed through the Help menu.
