Hi Hood,
I've tried the things on your list in the following order with no change in the symptoms described earlier.
I restarted Mach and the PC before each of these steps to ensure that I had a "clean slate"

Moved all of the plugins to a temp folder except for the current ESS plugin
Changed to an earlier ESS plugin
Loaded the standard screenset

In addition to what you suggested, I also switched to a USB SS, using the current USB driver, with no change in the symptoms, so I think we can rule out the ESS and its driver as the cause.

I am beginning to think that the problem is being caused by some other piece of software on the PC, so I will try another computer entirely.

Any other suggestions would be most welcome

Cheers

Dave

Thanks Hood XML attached

More details about this problem:

Homing either axis prior to running a job causes the steppers not to move, therefore the job fails. This is a bit different to what I first said.

I have a problem on the lathe and I was wondering if anyone has seen the same thing?

Everything is normal until after I have run one job, then the DRO's change normally but the X and Z stepper motors do not move, until Mach3 is restarted, at which time all is normal again until I run a job and the issue reoccurs.

This is a new problem, which has persisted for a few days so I suspect it is something I have done, but for the life of me, I do not know what.
 
I don't have to restart the PC, just Mach3.

My hardware is as follows:
PC P4
ESS
BOBs etc.

Thanks in anticipation

Dave

Hood I think a spreadsheet with links as suggested, I think by Rich, is a good idea too. If we make a copy of the info in the spreadsheet and attribute it with a URL, then if the website disappears it wont matter. The software for viewing and editing spreadsheets is available for free, if you use "open office" or LibreOffice,  among others. I will create the spreadsheet using LibreOffice - feel free to try the dictionary spreadsheet out with different types of spreadsheet programs.

Hi Rich, I'm afraid I don’t know where that which you refer to is?

"Dave,
Feel free to use the 19 pages for Arc Motion in the write up you will find in Members Docs."

I forgot to mention that the dictionary needs to be a collaborative effort, although, reading Rich's post seems to indicate that this is the general idea. Is it possible to have a shared location for the file? Although I will be happy to update the document in the mean time.
Also do we need to acknowledge contributors? I personally think not, since they are acknowledged on the thread anyway.

Cheers

Ok thanks Vodavt, it looks like it's time to put my money where my mouth is, or at least where my typing finger is. I'm not too sure about the copyright on things like pictures - does anyone out there know?
 Anyway, to be safe I've left the photos out pending copyright clarification. I also wonder how much content we can use from sources like Wikipedia? I wonder as well if we have to use original text? It would certainly be a lot easier to cut and paste from original sources on the net.

Eagerly awaiting your replies

Dave

It is great to see that while I've been away, you have all kept your sense of humour :) BTW We don't need a photo of the red-neck loading the dishwasher!

Hate to have that happen Hood after taking on the onerous task of maintaining the dictionary! In line with the aforementioned, I have updated, and if I do say so myself, improved the current version.

you got it first here...

(keep the definitions coming!)

Cheers

Dave
