chip load function not available. Nag Removal
#1
how do we remove the nag notification "chip load function not available. Enable tachometer and select a tool to activate it."
I don't need chip load function, tools or points only a simple DRO. Is there a fix for this bug?

You can't remove it. It's not a bug - it's a short toast message that disapears in a few seconds.

I would respectfully suggest that for many users who do not have a tach input, this toast message is a major nuisance and even though it "disappears in a few seconds" when you consider that the desired interaction is to click in the axis to load the per-axis dialog, tap on the readout to either edit the number or zero it, and hit ok, this couple of unnecessary seconds will make the interaction 5x longer than it need be.

I would absolutely love the ability to turn off this notification, as I see it every single time and I do not have a spindle encoder, so it is a major nusiance.

If we had a per-axis zero option on the front GUI, like many other DROs I have used, this would be mostly a moot point, additionally

Thanks and I appreciate what you have made, Paul

This 100% should be considered a bug, or at least a design decision that should be revisited.

LittleMachineShop is distributing the app on small tablets and the toast message appears directly over the action buttons. Going into an axis to simply zero, 1/2 or perform any simple action becomes very annoying since you need to wait for the toast to completely transition out before you can hit close. By the end of a long session of machining, I'm ready to throw the tablet at the wall Undecided

This has been fixed a long time ago in TouchDRO. LMS is distributing a version of TouchDRO from 2015 that is 3 major released behind, and it's baked into the tablet, so you can't un-install it either (as far as I know). 
I don't support their DRO, so you should contact LMS.
