    All of these work fine in PathPilot for the last 6 months at least. Upgrade (free) to 2.3.6 or later and you'll enjoy them also. The current work offset is shown right above the axis DROs for me. e.g. "POS IN G54" or "POS in G54.1 P500" for the new expanded 500 work offsets.


    "The clock disappears during a tool change. When you stop a program the display defaults back to line 1. It doesn't have any way that I see to show what work offset you are working in."

    Ok. I've mostly been avoiding upgrading because I run sneaker net for transferring files, and I have been to lazy to want to re-enter all my tools in the tool table. I guess I'll have to look at it.

    You don't lose your tool table or work offsets or anything else when you upgrade PathPilot versions. It's all saved and restored properly. Even if you move from PP 1.x to 2.x which involves a quick re-imaging of the internal drive.
