Buggy Toolpath Preview

Aspire 9.512

Can anyone explain what the difference is when previewing toolpaths which selection method you choose? It appears that you get different results by checking the check box next to the toolpath vs highlighting the toolpath name.

I (and another user) have noticed that if you have multiple toolpaths, but only want to preview the "selected" toolpath and have the chosen toolpath checked, but another toolpath name highlighted (but not checked), the preview will show the highlighted toolpath or sometimes both.

Think I am going crazy..

The checkbox controls visibility so if you have toolpaths checked and use Preview Visible Toolpaths that is what you will get.

If you have a toolpath highlighted but not checked then it will not be shown with Preview Visible as it's not visible.

If the toolpath is highlighted and then the Preview Selected Toolpath is clicked then that toolpath will be shown regardless of visibility.

Where you're going wrong is using the checkbox as a means to select for the Selected Toolpath option. The checkbox is for visibility not selection.

Kinda confusing, but thanks for the explanation.

Looked back at the manual, but didn't see any kind of explanation for this
