    Default Add Button to PP

    Anyone know how to add an extra coolant button to PP to allow you to choose an M7 coolant during manual moves or with conversational?

    Alt-M should do it. Adding a button is a pain in the ass because you'll have to re-add it after every upgrade.

    Here it is: Alt-M
    Toggle auxiliary solenoid on and off (requires SmartCool MultiCoolant Module, PN 37168)
    1Cancel manual override with Alt + C or any subsequent M-code command.

    But there is still no way to specify M7 in Conversational without re-editing the code. Should be able to select M7 or M8 in Conversational.

    Thats for the shortcut.

    M8 and M9 are toggled via Alt-F.

    "But there is still no way to specify M7 in Conversational without re-editing the code.". That's correct as far as I know. I guess I didnt look past your "manual move" comment. Sorry.

    If you are familiar with glade and python, you should be able to add the button. The glade file is in /python/images. The python file you'll want to look at first is probably /python/conversational.py

    But as I said, its a pain in the butt to maintain the code. I have to do it on my machine every update.
