Having the tool description here would help verify for the operator.

I agree, the G code window should bias the data to what is coming up, not what has been. Right now there is no "look ahead" ability as noted here. When running a new program its needful to be able to monitor the code that is about to be executed so as to pause, slow down or stop completely. Right now its like driving at 80 mph in the dead of night with no lights and a bright sunny day in your rear view mirror. 2-3 lines of executed code at top and the rest all pending code would be preferable.

Hi Guy's,

Only just spotted this.
MASSO does display the tool name when a tool change is requested.
If you go into the F4 screen you will see tools 1 - 99 on the G3 or 1-32 on the G2
Simply double click the tool number in question, enter a tool name and save.
Now when you execute an M6 command it display the tool number and the name from the tool table.

Hope this helps
Cheers Peter
