Mill tool offsets in tool library?
#2
Hm, I can't try this right now (at work...) but this doesn't sound right.
The way offsets work in TouchDRO is as follows:
There is raw position (as received from the scale adapter)
If there is absolute offset (i.e. you set "Absolute Origin" on the axis, the offset is added to the raw position to show the "Absolute" position
If there is incremental offset, it's added to the absolute position to show the incremental position (when a saved point is selected, this is what happens as well, although in a more complicated way)
If there is a tool offset, it is added to the absolute position

I.e.
absolute position = raw position + absolute origin offset + tool offset
incremental position = if no point selected: absolute position + incremental offset, if point selected: absolute position _ point offset

You are the first person reporting this, but that might just mean that nobody uses the tool library with an edge finder (I didn't even test this use case), so it's plausible that there is a bug somewhere in keeping track what offsets are applied.
