I forget to try, will ask. I hope, in HOLD position, pins state changed by modal codes don't reverse, isn't it? Not fatal, but better is to stay in place...

Mxx somewhere in the program changes output state of pin X from LOW to HIGH. I'm holding the Mach3 via LPT. What will happens with the pin X output level? Will go back to LOW or will stay HIGH as I ordered with Mxx?

Modal code for "coolant" for example, but this is just for example...

Hi Hood,

I checked... No surprise for you: of course NO acceleration and decelaration when opening the window.   :(

Frankly speaking: After Art said this, I didn't even believe that there woud be proper start or stop...

Konrad, thanks for testing it out, would have been a handy thing if it did work.
