Phil's idea of swapping out the jog panel sounds like a great idea.
The other thing that needs to be displayed is the Plasmac material that is selected.
Somewhere we need to be able to see all the cut parameters for the selected material but maybe they don't have to be on the main screen.
Maybe you could shorten the preview and place the material name, cut height, pierce height, pierce delay and cut speed either above or below the preview on one or two lines. Clicking that line might open a selection window or tab and show the rest of the settings.
Reverse-run can be a full tab. I can see the usabliity.
Morever, I think thats a good idea to show material selected and some properties. I can make some place for it. I will post.
I like the idea of at least having the selected material on the main screen, maybe even in a corner of the cut path rendering screen. The rest of the settings could stay on a settings tab to minimize clutter.
I am giving some time to thoughts, soon I will share the screen with material info and Reverse run on Halt.
Thanks for that but unfortunately the only Windows box I have is a VM running XP

If you wanna check CNC Panels from big players at market check the simulator (trial) from here:

Do you have a preference for how disabled widgets should be indicated? Grayed out?
You work is great.
You can just decrease the opacity to 20%, it will be greyed out. or you can check the video i shared earlier.
did you derease the total height because sizes of the widgets have changed a lot.

@rodw. I have made the tile bar with material info.
Looks great, could there be a button beside the cut options that when pressed changed the line to display the name of the materials entry? Some of us without the ability to set the plasma cutter up via RS485 might have something like "2mm mild steel, 5.2 bar, 40 amps" for the name. I thought cycling through the data would save screen space.
Also when G54 offsets are displayed, could there be a button that zeroes X & Y and sets the G54 offset? I saw a home button there but maybe thats not the right icon.
Also, that zero button might need a configuration option so that it also zeros to a laser pointer position before setting the offset. I find that pretty important
