Odd results when burning

New user here. I’m using Lightburn to engrave some text on a backlit panel. Getting inconsistent results. Settings are the same for all text. But you can see that the text in the lower right (ENG/AVIONICS and SUB PANEL) is perfect. While the other, not as much. Also, notice the vertical line. All part of the same layer but Lightburn has made a real mess of the vertical line, overburning it. But it’s all one object and it’s on the same layer… so … what’s up with that? Any ideas on what I should do to improve. As you can see… this panel is now toast. A lot of hours down the drain.

Also, why are the machine controls for jogging microscopic in size? I am using a touch pad to jog and it’s nearly impossible. I saw in a post some time ago that keyboard support was coming … that would be a godsend, but at a minimum, make the jog panel a reasonable size… maybe a modal panel that makes it reasonable to use. Not sure if it’s just my machine but this seems unusable.

Can you please take a screengrab of your “cuts/layers” tab? Please use “shift”+“windows”+the “S” key to take a screenshot. They aren’t on the same layer, in your screenshot you have a red object and blue object, those are different layers. You should set the blue objects to whatever you have for the red objects.

You can use this tool on the side to move the laser to where ever you want.

Great tip! Thanks Willie!!!
I’ll get the layer info in a bit. I’m away from my computer now.
