Hood, no Brains (not me, the software!) that I know of, and the additional plugins I have are one for the Romaxx machine (I believe it is for the closed loop system and possibly the MPG wheel), and one for an XBox controller. To eliminate the XBox controller as the source of the problem, I did a completely fresh install of Mach3 and only installed the Romaxx plugin. Same problem, so I then installed the XBox controller, which works fine.
If you can suggest how to modify the .xml so it isn't a "mess," I would certainly appreciate it. Maybe that will cure the issue.

Hood, I have no idea about the outputs. The .xml is provided by Romaxx and the only change supposedly needed is to enter the correct port address for the second LPT port (which I did). The encoder board connects to the 2nd LPT port and is for the MPG wheel and the closed loop circuit. Romaxx doesn't provide info for settings of any of the other inputs/outputs, and since I am not familiar with Mach3 yet, it's not something I would have any idea about. I would have thought the .xml from Romaxx would have been already set up for my particular machine.
Using the standard screenset has the same effect: no step jogging when first starting up, all jogging disable is I attempt to step jog, and then, after running a toolpath momentarily, all jogging functions back to normal.

Thanks, Hood. Here's the .xml file.

Hi, everyone. New Mach3 user and fairly new to CNC in general. I have a Romaxx WD-1 with a closed loop system. When first starting up Mach3, I can do continuous jogging and MPG jogging. If I try to do step jogging, all jogging becomes disabled, i.e., continuous and MPG won't work. However, if I then run a toolpath (any toolpath, even for 1 second), all jogging then works fine, including step jogging. I can live with this, just running a toolpath briefly whenever I first start up, but I'm wondering if anyone has ever encountered this behavior and knows of a fix. Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions.
