machine control panel: remember connection port

Tue Jun 25, 2019 10:25 am

Each time I connect using the machine control panel have to remember to click on the PORT selector and go to the bottom of a very technical looking list to select the one port that has the letters "USB" in it. Otherwise of course it won't work.

Suggest that:

a) the software remembers the last choice made for a successful connection;

b) in the absence of (a) then the sofware defaults to the most likely choice given the OS (Mac, Windows....). Probably something to do with USB.

Thanks for your request. This has previously been requested in the other subforums. Nonetheless I've added this thread as a discussion area to our tracking of this particular request. I look forward to hearing other users' ideas or specific interests with relation to USB automatic port selection.

Thanks again!
