    Default Mach3 DRO Question

    I know this is simple but I cannot figure it out
    I tried to find the center of my work but using edgefinder and locating to one side zero my DRO the jogging and locating to the other side. The selected the DRO and did the /2 function which gave me what I wanted the center of the ,2 numbers ....
    So now the dumb part..
    I have in the DRO the location I need to move my mill Too..
    How do I do that...
    I see nowhere to locate to a point in the DRO.

    I would like to enter a number into DRO and locate to that number...

    Ok.. lol how

    You need to use the MDI for motion.
