First, very nice job so far on FlatCAM. (still dont know how i found it. :) When using the select tool or drawing a rectangle, sometimes the Dot is way off from the tip of mouse. Hitting esc a couple times usally brings it back to mouse tip. Am i missing something? Totally new to FlatCAM and PCB work, but not to CAD/CAM or CNC. Thanks, Troy
forgot... Iam using FlatCAM on Windows XP.
Hi Troy, I'm not sure what could be causing the problem in your case. The way it works is that when mouse movement is detected (The operating system does the detection), the program is notified and the coordinates of the mouse are provided. The dot is drawn at those coordinates. Are you getting a constant offset, is the dot tracking the mouse too slowly? JP
Offset seems to be all over, most of the time it offsets toward the lower right.The dot tracks mouse movement at correct speed.
Any related symptoms? The coordinates reported at the bottom, are they the mouse's or the dot's?
It happens most often when doing the following.... 1) In Project Tab select gerber plot, then create a non copper region. 2) In Project Tab select new non copper layer. Then from View menu, Disable all plots but this one. 3) Choose Edit Geometry from Menu then select any of the non copper geometry. 4) From View Menu Enable all plots. 5) In Project Tab select gerber plot. Then mouse over to design/grid area and dot appears at bottom. Coordinates at bottom are tracking mouse not dot.
What version are you running? Can you try an older version and see in which one the problem goes away, if it does at all? Thanks, JP
Running 8.1. Ill let you know how older versions work. Thanks
8.0 does same thing....
Version 7 does not appear to have an editing option.
I also tried Version 8.1 on Win 7 Home Premium, with same results.
What about DPI settings on video properties? Are you using defaults (100%) ?
Win 7 still gives you the same problem!!?? You must be doing something unusual. What kind of hardware do you have?
Screen Resolution is native. 1680x1050. All defaults. PC is.... AMD Athlon 64X2 DualCore 5200+_2.6GHz 4GB Ram DDR2 NVIDIA GeForce 8400 -512MB Seagate SSHD
Just for the record, could you post a screenshot showing the problem? The only thing I can think of is that you have some other software or hardware interfering, like 2 mice... Anybody else having this problem?
1 mouse _Logitech TrackMan Wheel. [Mouse and Dot](//muut.com/u/flatcam/s2/:flatcam:aQPB:mouseanddot.jpg.jpg)
Those kind of problems was quite always related to DPI settings. But this time it seems to be not the case. You say you're on defaults. Is your default 100% or other?
Everything set to default, unless there is another setting in driver iam unaware of.
