Iam new to roboguide and trying to find out how to review and edit existing TP programs properly.

I see that i can only edit programs in virtual teach pendant, is that correct? I have programs with lots of jump labels and call instructions and its a real pain to go through them in virtual pendant. So far i am viewing and editing them in LS format.
Is there a part of roboguide that allows me a better program overview that iam missing?

In Roboguide, You can add an external file in the project tree, and if this file has some of the recognized  extensions (.ls, .kl), it will be opened in Roboguide intenal text editor.

So You can review your code in RG text editor, build program (converting it to TP format), run it on virtual robot, and restart the procedure if necessary.

But this internal text editor doesn't have too much resources. I will only help to increase (a little bit) the speed of Your workflow.

One method, which is a bit roundabout, but I like to use, is to connect to the virtual robot via ftp, and then use whatever program you want to edit the .ls files.

For example, at one client of mine, I connect using Filezilla, then just use the view/edit feature, and filezilla will watch the local file for changes, and when you are done, or save, you reupload the file to the robot.
Check out the position converter I wrote here!

Tnx for replies, it does indeed improve the workflow.
However, i noticed i cant build or ftp upload certain programs, the ones that contain named registers, like this:

Code: [Select]
L PR[18:POS1] R[30:SPEED1]mm/sec FINE    ;

And it gives me this error:

Code: [Select]
Undefined instruction                                                 
Build Failed: Error translating program: Code: 0x160002: [SPRUNCMDF]

If i remove speed register name and leave position name everything builds and uploads just fine ???

Code: [Select]
L PR[18:POS1] R[30]mm/sec FINE    ;

What Roboguide version You are using? And what FRVRC?

It seems to be controller issue. Robots are 6.30 and building program using FRVRC 6.30 gives those errors. If i build the same LS file in later controller version 7, or 8 it builds just fine.
I also tried other versions of v6 controllers and both 6.30 and 6.31 cant build this code, unless i remove "SPEED1" name from the line.

Code: [Select]
L PR[18:POS1] R[30:SPEED1] mm/sec FINE    ;

You need ASCII Upload(R796) option to do what you are trying to do. Reason R[30] still propagates is because Robot understands R[30] and pulls data in.

Edit: Above is if you are trying to take LS to actual robot. If using RG, it comes default with RG.
