And would hardly expect most screens operating cnc machines to have resolution larger then 1280x1024 ish but then again maybe I spend less on my controller machines then others.
I don't run Aspire on my controller PC, everything is done on the office PC and then the cut file is transferred and automatically loaded onto the controller PC. However my controller PC does have a 1920x1200 resolution screen that cost me £20 off ebay.
I don't think anyone is disagreeing with you about the changes. As I say it's almost certainly an unintended change as it wasn't documented anywhere and I can't see any good reason for it. Things like that creep in with major changes to software unfortunately.
It's not putting duplicated toolpaths at the bottom of the list for me. They go directly under the source toolpath whether the list is scrolled or not. Unless I'm misunderstanding what you're seeing.
I make a great deal of use of the variables in the software for depths etc so most of my toolpaths do multiple duties by adapting to the thickness of the material plus I use toolpath template libraries extensively which is probably why I don't have large lists of toopaths.
I very rarely create a toolpath from scratch these days. For most jobs (such as the color core example) I would load the job which might have been a 1/4" thickness job, change the thickness in job setup to 1/2" and then click recalculate all and all the toolpaths automatically adjust to the new thickness.
The maximum number of toolpaths I have in job is six although there can be hundreds of parts over multiple sheets associated with those six toolpaths.
