    Printing problem - No cell numbers

    Hi all, I installed PE6 ( on a Win7 PC and everything seems to have gone well, except that it will not print out the cell numbers. I made a program in Logicator and converted it to a .bas file. In the editor I can see the cell numbers and the gotos all correctly, but when printing only...

    Is it possible to change the background and font color to something else?

    I was wishing for a way to tone down that white background and change font color too. Maybe have a way to change color of keywords, commands, comments. I have not had much success trying to do this. Am I missing something? Thanks

    Barcode Wizard

    Communicating from PICAXE M2 series to Arduino UNO advice needed.

    I would like to have a Picaxe driven sensor on one board and have it pass data to an Arduino UNO (or Mini or Mega). I was wondering what the best (easiest) way to do this was. for instance I would like to pass analog values and digital like from a temp and motion sensor. Should I use something...

    Picaxe 08M2+ PIR and Relay put together for a automatic light switch

    Here is a project I made to turn on my basement light when someone enters the laundry room. I chose the PICAXE 08M2 for this because it was just the right little chip for the job. When I first started this project I thought it would be a straight forward "easy" thing to do, well, it was not...
