I'm sorry, you are right.  Figures, That was the one tab I didn't look under when I was frantically looking for info...  I will look them over and see if I have anymore questions.

If you click on teh advanced options when you go to post a topic it will allow you to attach a image.  Just save it as a *.jpg and post it that way.

It's pretty easy.  when you have the screen on your monitor, press the "print screen" button on your keyboard.  What it does is send the desktp pic to your clipboard.  Next open up paint and go to edit at the top of the page.  Select paste and it will be put on your screen as an image.  Just save it as whatever you want and post in the message using the attach button inder "additional options".  Hope that helps.

I've recently downloaded Mach 3 for trial and I am having problems getting it to work with my driver.  Right now I am using an Intelligent Motion Systems IB106 Stepper motor driver with a Pacific Scientific PowerMax II 8 wire stepper.  When I connect the drive to the motor it just gets hot.  I'm not sure I have the motor wired right, but that's a different problem.  My question is about the pins for teh signals.  I am using pin 2 as step on the X-axis and pin 3 as direction.  What I am not understanding is how to make it work in a manul mode.  I hve no experience with CNC so I am reading ll I cn find on the subject.  There is no setup manual I can find for Mach which makes it a bit of a mystery to me.  I think I will get a different driver nd motor to try, but I wnt to mke sure I am thinking this out correctly.  ny hints or tips would be greatly appreciated. 

I did search and found some answers to other questions I had, but not to these.
