Customizing LCD interface & menu items

Postby musk » 2014-Dec-Tue-16-Dec

Is it possible to change what options are available from the LCD controller? For example, I'd like to:

- Condense "preheat PLA" and "preheat ABS" into a single command
- increase the speed for jogging the E axis
- move "flow rate" into a higher level menu for easier access

I have no idea how the thing works. Does the LCD have it's own firmware or is it just accessing the firmware running on the printrboard?

It's all part of the main Marlin firmware. You would have to start hacking ultralcd.cpp to make changes to the structure of functionality of the menus.
