New Menu-structure while printing, FW 1.0.1
this is my first post in this Forum. Until now, there was no reason to get an account in this Forum as the Repetier Firmware is Plug and Play for me and works flawlessly on my machines since years. You are doing a great Job here! But I can´t undestand the new UI Design decision in Repetiers new 1.0.1. Maybe it is a wrong Setup, but since I updated to 1.0.1, the menu of the LCD does not contain any Acceleration/Jerk Settings Sub-Menu any more when printing. No possibiliy to play arround with Parameters without a Host-Connection. The Content of the Menu changes once a print is started...
And - the List of available Options while printing is in a mess . Often used functions like Baby-Stepping at the end of the list... Is there any Chance to get the usability of the previous Versions back?
Thanks a lot!
As always what the one likes the other one dislikes.
It turns out you can restore the original default screen by making a small change in the commands.cpp file. If you search for the word PROGRESS and change the else command to
so the if/else always returns zero, then the old default menu is shown.
I guess the change to the menu was made, because manufacturers felt it was better for novices. I look upon that type of change as"duming down".
For V2 I think about a new method to create the menus to make them more flexible. Then we could have the progress view as start but for example use left/right to switch through the other displays or change handling dynamically. Currently menu is a fixed compiled data structure making it impossible to change behaviour with some settings.
Thanks for help!
