It seems like the comments page (http://www.cambam.info/contact) isn't working when you try to submit the comments.  At least, it isn't working for me.  I've filled out name & email, and a rather length amount of text in the Comments field, but it keeps returning a "Page Error" when submitting the comments.

Annuello,
It works just fine for me (just tested it).

Since Andy is on something of a hiatus right now, it is best for you to post your suggestions and comments here on the forum, unless they are of a personal nature for Andy.

I wonder if there is a limitation in the amount of text one can put into the Comment field of the feedback page.  I had around 4730 characters in my comments - maybe that is too many.

I was going to send some detailed feedback on my experience with Cambam's GUI as a new user, particularly with how keyboard navigation could be made more intuitive.  It's mostly to do with tabbing (and Shift+tabbing) between windows, and keyboard navigation/editing of the ObjectPropertyWindow fields.

Since I'm a "laptop on the couch at night" user (without a 3-button mouse), the occasional dependency on mouse movements is probably more obvious to me than someone sitting at a desk.  It might also be my programming background that make me want to rattle my fingers on the keyboard rather than use the mouse/trackpad when I need to move to another field to edit it.

I'll send my comments to support@cambamcnc.com.  If people are interested in my detailed comments just ask and I'll put them into the "CamBam plus feedback" sub-forum.

I must say, I'm so happy with CamBam that I bought it after 4 trial-period launches.  And as a fan of opensource/freeware, that is saying something.  Smiley  Double thumbs-up to Andy.

Yours,
Annuello.

Annuello,

Yes; please post your recommendations/suggestions/observations here.

Although Andy will get the suggestion if you send directly to him, he tends to react well to the group's suggestions.

If there is sufficient encouragement from the forum to make a change, it's quite possible it might happen in a future revision.  When only one person makes a suggestion directly, it might or might not have the same impact on his choices.

Although it sounds like you already have a good start on using CB, this is the place to be when you have questions.  We've got some folks here who can solve nearly any problem you're having.

Manuals aside, this is the place I learn most about the package.

Thanks,
Lloyd

I think several of us have commented that we think certain things would be easier and faster with keyboard support as well as mouse support.  The big one is advancing from one parameter field to the next for MOP parameters.  

In CB's defense zoom and pan works without the mouse.  There are a number of programs I have tried that the only way I can zoom is with a mouse wheel.  Since I like a track ball I had to add a second pointing device with a wheel just for those applications.  ICK!

Getting started on CNC?  In or passing through my area?
If I have the time I'll be glad to show you a little in my shop.
