Upgrade to ARC Pro

Unleash your creativity with the power of easy robot programming using Synthiam ARC Pro

Hi DJ... as I said in the last post, I'm still not able to delete servos in the AutoPosition control...

is just me? I'm using a virtual machine (windows 7 PRO) on a MAC..
select the servo and press the Delete button on the keyboard. Not the backspace button - which some ppl confuse the two

Right DJ especially on Mac machines running Windows, Mac keyboards are different than Windows keyboards. Some older laptops did not even have a delete key.

@tevans you can always use the virtual keyboard under all programs/accessories/ease of access/on screen keyboard. Also a easier way to take screen grabs.
BTW, thanks for the great update DJ!
Sorry if this is posted elsewhere, is there there certain format the .wav files for the ezb audio have to be in? I get an unhandled exception error when I try to load a file.
@fxrtst I know ARC can load .mp3s but DJ will have to fill in the other supported formats
Ok, I assumed .wav was supported as I was loading audio into the EZB audio and both .mp3 and .wav were listed as extensions supported for loading.
Thanks friends.
I'll try again.. But, I Am sure using te delete key...
Let me try te virtual...
