Bring back editing Chip load/RPM/Feed directly
we used to be able to edit the Chip load, RPM and feed in the results directly in older versions (before UI update).
Now this functionality is gone and I can only use those sliders (which, with 10% increments is quite unprecise).
I can tap the fields and enter a value, but on pressing enter, the fields simply default back to the prior calculation result.
Is this behaviour intended, or is it a mere oversight of a bug? The only field that is directly editable is "Vc".
I kind of need this feature back for working with those old manual machines that have fixed gearboxes for fixed speeds and feeds...
Say, the resulting RPM are 834 but my machine only has 600 and then 1000, then I'd choose 600, enter 600 in FSWizard and it would calculate/correct the other values accordingly.
I know this might be a bit of a nuisance to implement, as editing multiple fields would change previously entered values so I propose the following:
[list=1][*]Assume all results fields were green (e.g. Initial calculation result = Auto-calculated).
[*]One value is changed and from there on will not be changed by calculations anymore (e.g. it's now locked to the entered value)
[*]Another value is changed and is now also locked. Only the remaining values now have to be calculated, based on the entries.[/list]
Then, to reset any field to "auto-calculate" simply enter "0" in the field or press a "Reset"-Button next to the field (you'd have to implement it though...), you can make it, so the button only appears, when the value has been changed manually...
Of course, all fields would be reset on change of any tool or material parameters. There, a simple "padlock"-button next to a result field could lock this value, so not everything is reset on a small tool change.
I've attached a little picture of how I would envision that exactly.
Let me know what you think, I hope it wasn't too long to read.
