Philip, afraid that one is blank as well.
You will need to find out which pins you have the Step and Dir signals connected to and set them up in Ports and Pins, Motor Ouputs, and also remember to enable each axis and set a port number for each step and dir pin.
 Your port number will just be 1 unless you have a second port, so that part should be straightforward.

Hood thank you. I will give that a try. Is there a directory file that keeps back ups that I could pick a date when the machine
was running and use that as my new profile? If so where would it be cause I looked and nothing said back up that I could find.

Thanks for your time,
All the best,
Philip

There is a backup automatically kept every so often, not sure if its each day or each time you start. To get a backup go to operator menu then choose Restore Settings. You should get a drop down box to choose how many days ago you want to restore from, if you dont get that then it would seem you are using the wrong profile or something serious went wrong and all was wiped out.

Hood:

I don't seem to have a restore settings. I'm going to try
to reset this the way you suggest.

Thank you so much for your help and time.

All the best,
Philip

You must have an old version of Mach if there is no restore option :(
