Can a subprogram(M98 Call) be pointed to - and displayed by the editor?


Many of our parts use an M98 subprogram call to refer back to routine things like customer logo’s etc.  that are used many times on many different parts.   Can a subprogram be loaded into GWizard so when the main program runs it will also run/display the subprogram work as well?

Looking forward to using GWizard for a ton of offline programing.

Currently, the subprogram must be placed in the same file with the main program for it to be called.  Most put any standard things in a single file and just add that file to the end of their main program for testing.  The Insert File command from the Insert Menu is a handy way to do this.

Longer term we will add the ability to define a standard folder where G-Wizard will search for any subprograms not defined in the main program file.
