I am having a slight issue setting up my tools in tool manager. I went through and made my own custom tool library which suits our machine tools. The problem is i cannot clear the two bottom values as they are blanked out and this is causing errors when i go to use the tools in a cam plan. I will attach a picture to show my problems. I have tried hitting the reset button but it still does not clear the values. Any help would be appreciated.

I am a developer of ZWSOFT, I am glad to answer your question.
First, this two bottom value is useless in Mill Tool, except in subtype Wheel. So I blank them in UI, and it doesn't effect the tool parameters.
I am sorry that it may lead a misunderstand, we will hide these value in next verison.
You said it will cause error in a cam plan, I don't know what error is, can you give me more detail? Thanks.

Thanks for the response. I have since tried Daves solution and found that i was still getting the errors. When i was setting up my tools i added a holder to every tool. Once i open the tool in tool manager the tool holder name comes up in the tool holder section but no preview of the holder. once i deleted the tool holder i was able to do a cam plan with no errors. so i assume i possibly was either inputting the tool holder information incorrectly or saving this incorrectly.

Would it be at all possible to send me a quick video of how you go about permanently setting up a tool with holder and using it in a basic cam with no errors so i can see where i am going wrong?
IF you are too busy that is ok as i can work around it.
I do not have skype or a webcam sorry.

Really appreciate you taking the time to make the video. The support on here has improved ten fold over the past couple of years. It appears from your video i was doing everything correctly. The problem i was having is when i save the tool and holder and try to use it again later. I will keep having a play around and get back to you with results.
