    Lathe Diameter mode on wireless MPG

    Hello,
    I've installed the last upgrade of TNG which include the diameter mode on X axis display for lathe type machine.
    But I'm not able to see the same on the display of original wireless MPG.
    It's possible to have the same value on both display? I've not found the setting for that.

    I've implemented this and will be in next beta version.

    Thank you for reply.
    Could I have other problems with the beta version, or can I install it peacefully?

    Some parameter names were changed. This could affect any custom scripts you have.

    1. Create a copy of PlanetCNC installation folder (normally this includes all your profiles)
    2. Extract .exe and two .dll files from BETA .zip and replace existing files
    3. Now you have both versions installed simultaneously. Firmware is the same so you can use which one you want.

    I recommend that you do this because eventually BETA will become current.
    Everything is ready except some parameters need to be documented:

    And I'm doing minor tweaks like the one you requested.
