2. DESCRIPTION OF OPERATIONS
Symbol CAPi T
The operation status of some soft keys is indicated. In plain mode,
whether the operation of a soft key is under way is indicated by reversing
the color of the soft key display. In background color mode, whether the
operation of a soft key is under way is indicated by recessing the soft key.

If a soft key is not of a type whose operation status is indicated, pressing
it does not cause it to be recessed.
If switching occurs from the Symbol CAPi T screen to the NC screen, and
reverse switching occurs again, the Symbol CAPi T screen returns to its
When both the NC and Symbol CAPi T screens are in background color
mode (screen with a background color), and if switching to the NC screen
occurs in animation mode, followed by switching back to the Symbol
CAPi T screen, all previous animated drawings are canceled, and the
blank figures that existed before animation are drawn.
When both the NC and Symbol CAPi T screens are in plain mode (screen
with no background color), the situation varies depending on whether
gradation is used. If gradation is not used, animated drawings are
maintained in the background even after switching to the NC screen
occurs. When switching back to the Symbol CAPi T screen occurs,
therefore, resumed drawings represent the situation of a figure machined
as directed by the executed NC program. If gradation is used, the situation
is the same as when both the NC and Symbol CAPi T screens are in
background color mode.
