The following soft keys are incorporated into ManualTurn. Each of
them has the same function and screen position whatever the
General soft key functions
"Alternat." soft key
This soft key appears when the cursor is positioned on an input field
with several parameter setting options.
Examples of these are as follows:
• Feed F in mm/min, in mm/rev or in rapid traverse
• Spindle speed S in rev/min or m/min
Please note: Speed in m/min only applies in conjunction with feedrate
in mm/rev (constant cutting speed)
• Absolute and incremental programming for axis motions (X, Z)
• Clockwise/counterclockwise direction of rotation
• Position of the coordinate system and machining types (roughing,
etc.) for cycles

You can change the sign of the value on which the cursor is positioned
