I have been using the variable text feature to make lots of name tags lately and it has saved me uncounted hours. Thank you for this feature!
Just one suggestion for you to consider. The TEST button on the Variable text window is great, but would there be anyway for you to convert that button to a toggle? So I could just set it to always show the text it will send to the laser all the time. Then be able to toggle back to Variable Text edit mode when I need to make changes to the control characters.
This is because once I have the control characters set and filled in, I really have no more reason to see them and I spend a lot of time holding the TEST button down.
