    This is how my machine is, you can see the direction of text on a work piece. When I designed that workpiece on my computer the text would be showing left to right.

    Wait till your asked to design text on one piece at all different angles & upside down and raised & sunken then you might get fussy.

    If you were doing lots of it the same way then you might want to change but if you are working on different layouts I would say leave as is, quick rotate is select all press Ctrl +9 45 left, Ctrl +0 45 right

    Then just change your ports and pins settings (and slave settings), so that you have two motors on your Y axis, and one on the X.

    Surely that just rotates vectors that you have created on the workpiece it does not rotate the workpiece. When I looked into this originally I could not see or find (google) anyway of rotating the job/workpiece. It would be great if you could rotate everything on the XY Datum.

    You can use G68 in Mach3 to rotate the program 90.

    BUt my preference would always be to configure the machine to match V-Carve Pro. Having to rotate anything should be a rare case, rather than the norm.
