This section describes the basic program editing functions. These functions are available in all program editing modes. When you use the Advanced Editor, you have additional functions available, which are described in that section.

  1. To write a program, or make changes to a program: To edit a program in MDI, press MDI. This is EDIT:MDI mode. The program is displayed on the Active pane. To edit a numbered program, select it in the Device Manager (LIST PROGRAM), then press EDIT. This is EDIT:EDIT mode. The program is displayed in the Program Generation pane.
  2. To highlight code: Use the cursor arrow keys or the jog handle to move the highlight cursor through the program. You can interact with single pieces of code or text (cursor highlighting), blocks of code, or multiple blocks of code (block selection). Refer to the Block Selection section for more information.
  3. To add code to the program: Highlight the code block you want the new code to follow. Type the new code. Press INSERT. Your new code appears after the block you highlighted.
  4. To replace code: Highlight the code you want to replace. Type the code you want to replace the highlighted code with. Press ALTER. Your new code takes the place of the code you highlighted.
  5. To remove characters or commands: Highlight the text you want to delete. Press DELETE. The text that you highlighted is removed from the program.
  6. Press UNDO to reverse up to the last (40) changes.
    note: You cannot use UNDO to reverse changes that you made if you exit EDIT:EDIT mode.
    note: In EDIT:EDIT mode, the control does not save the program as you edit. Press MEMORY to save the program and load it into the Active Program pane.

Be aware: Many service and repair procedures should be done only by authorized personnel. The service technicians at your Haas Factory Outlet (HFO) have the training, experience, and are certified to do these tasks safely and correctly. You should not do machine repair or service procedures unless you are qualified and knowledgeable about the processes.

Danger: Some service procedures can be dangerous or life-threatening. DO NOT attempt a procedure that you do not completely understand. Contact your Haas Factory Outlet (HFO) and schedule a service technician visit if you have any doubts about doing a procedure.
