This gadget will renumber all your tools in your toolpaths, starting from 1. It's clever enough to use the tool name in selecting the tool number assignments, so you don't get duplicate numbers for the same tool. It's useful if you don't have an ATC, but do have an FTC. You don't have to worry about duplicate tool number errors for the post.
Download the file and rename it to Tool_Renumber.vgadget (i.e. change the "zip" to "vgadget"). Tell windows it's ok to change the extension when the dialog pops up.
In Aspire or Vcarve Pro go to Gadgets -> Install New Gadget in the menubar. Navigate to whichever directory you have the Tool_Renumber.vgadget file, and select it. The gadget should install. You can run it to renumber the tools. It can be run whenever you want - even just before you save the tap file(s). It doesn't force any recalculations of toolpaths, because that's just not necessary. You won't be prompted to, and are not required to, save your file before exiting the Vectric software. It doesn't set any "dirty and must save" status for the file.
