Hi folks,
I've been quite happy with the Mach3 PP and never went into the magic of writing or changing a PP.
Is there a reference to the set of property names available in the PP?

I'd like to add a comment to the tool change macro to show the stock surface value as a comment for the MOP.  Sometimes, depending on the machined object I use mixed stock surface values - either the top surface or the bottom. And  it would be helpful for me to have a hint in the G-code. After a period of time if I do the same part again I have to go back through the project to refresh my memory.

Thanks, Eddy!
I tried searching in the .PDF but didn't have the right clue what to search for. Therefore resorted to the classic "ask the forum, someone ought to help"  Wink

$mop.stocksurface did the trick
