Nest Button

Postby Dave Burtchell » Tue, Nov 06 2007, 10:52PM

Any chance of getting the \"nest\" button changed to two buttons? Nest X, and Nest Y.

Thanks,
Dave

by this do you mean to be able to nest horizontally or vertically?

Yes, Instead of going to the settings screen and choosing a nest direction of X, or Y, just change the nest button to two buttons, nest X, and nest Y. I always try both directions to see which gives better yield. It would be OK if I could just hit \"Enter\" to leave the settings screen. Or a drop down menu to choose X or Y. That way it could all be done with the mouse instead of mouse to keyboard to mouse to keyboard. Am I to lazy? or what?

That would be a great feature. I also ALWAYS check both nest directions and this would make it so much easier.
