How to add the run/pause/stop buttons on others tab

The default configuration doesn't give you the "Run" ribbon in the probe tab. In this example we'll add it there, but the process is similar for other menu/tab. Here the result.

bCNC Customize Menu 1

To do this you have to manually change the .bCNC configuration file. At the moment this have to be done with an external editor.

_The file is created in your user directory. It's NOT the "bCNC.ini" file in the bCNC folder. The exact location of this file depends on you operating system.

For a fast find click in the Tool ribbon and then the configure tab. A user file button will be displayed. Click an then the ./bcn file will be shown.

bCNC Customize Menu 2

Here for windows: Hit [Windows key + R] paste %UserProfile% in the Run prompt, then click OK. The user folder will open and there you'll find the .bCNC file. Right click and choose "open with" then select notepad._

In the file you have to add this line in [bCNC] section:
probe.ribbon = Connection Probe Run

The Run option will add the buttons you want.

Restart to take effect.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
