WOC% Field does not always work as expected [FIXED]

Heya Eldar,

Hope all is well on your side of the world. Just checking in after downloading the latest update with a minor issue for your perusal.

I load or enter an end mill that I am going to use to skim 0.010 off the top of my part. I enter 0.010 as my DOC and the WOC defaults to 100% (but the slot/pocket box is not checked.) In the past I would simply slam 50% into the WOC % box and it'd take it no problem. After latest update, if I type any number into the WOC % box it turns on slot/pocket and sets WOC to 100%.

Related, if the DOC/WOC boxes are green, it seems there are some issues with entering a mathematical statement (if I want to add to depths together). I haven't run into this one as much, but it is acting up today so I figured I'd mention it.

Otherwise, everything seems right as rain, nice to see steady updates coming again.

Errr, not each new update, just this past one or maybe the one before...

What you describe in the first part of the post is the designed behaviour.

If WOC is default and you set manual doc, it will recalculate WOC as well.

WOC % setting indeed fails when WOC is green....

I will fix it in the next update!

I have also managed to replicate with regularity the second issue I mentioned:

If you choose an end mill and try to type a math formula into the DOC/WOC boxes it reverts to the recommended DOC/WOC instead of the math I wanted to type in.

For example, if I type .02+.03 in the DOC field, it used to result in .05 and autocalc the WOC (green box). Now it just resets to green recommended setting for both and ignores what I type.

Again nothing that breaks the program, just gotta be careful if you use the DOC/WOC boxes to do calculations on the fly.

Thanks again!

Uhmmm. No. It never worked like that! The + operator is not working. only the / one works.

My mistake, must be bleed over from Mastercam or Solidworks, one of those "it's so intuitive and convenient elsewhere it must be broken" sort of thoughts. No worries :ernaehrung004: .

Thanks for the quick replies and update for the WOC% box, I'll stop nitpicking (I'm probably your favorite customer eh? :hammer3: ) from here on out lol.
