Touch screen - right clicking in G-Code

Post by cwatson1982 » Tue Sep 01, 2020 12:50 am

I finally got around to cobbling together an operator console using an old resistive touch screen I got cheaply and got my feed/spindle/rapid over-ride pots working. Unfortunately in Windows 10, when holding to right click in the G-Code portion of the screen (to copy/paste or set next line), I don't get a right click menu. It works in every other app on the PC, including notepad but no-go in KmotionCNC, it seems to want to drag the g-code text-box around instead. Any chance this is something easy to fix? Otherwise I'll have to mount a mouse or get used to turning on the software touch-pad.

Please try this patch for Version KMotion435c.

Copy this KMotionCNC.exe to the C:\KMotion435c\KMotion\Release folder
