Maybe it’s a touch of OCD, but when I see a mess like this I can’t help but point out the simple procedure used to tidy up the RSLogix 5 and 500 workspace:

Step 1: In the top menu select “Window,” then “Arrange”

  1. What does my weekend look like this week? Well, tonight the wife and I will likely forgo camping and take the mountain bikes out instead. And tomorrow I hope to come one step closer to finishing my home office by painting the moldings and installing the electrical panel 🙂

    How about you?
