Hi Guys:

  I found this one. It is definitely fixed for next version. It was a variable overwrite in the GenLists for the new toolpath as you discovered.
Thanks for all the detective work, it led me straight there..

Hey Hood,
    Have you tried the soft limits in this version? Do they work as they should?
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

Yes, I'm running version 1.84.xx, the lockdown. When running a program it does not slow down to a stop. It is more like an E-Stop than softlimits. I knew creep-pea had been trying to get this worked out. I just didn't know if it was in the latest version.

Brett
 do you have a slow zone set in the homing limits page?
That is what should make the softlimits slow before they hit limits. I have my slow zones set at 20mm (3/4" approx) on X and Y and 5mm on the Z and they work fine.
 I think Creap-pea was having a problem with Mach telling him that softlimits would be activated when he opened some code. This was because of the tool offsets he had and Mach for some reason was seeing these offsets and saying he would be out of limits when in fact he wouldnt be. I am not sure if this is fixed  as I have never seen this problem but probably because I have not used offsets.

Yes, I do have a slow zone set. I have inserted a screen shot for you to see. ( A friend told me about this cool program ). When running code, when it gets in the zone it just stops, no slow down. You do not have to hit reset to jog ( as with E-Stop ) but there is deffinatley no slowdown.

ha ha ok, think I know who that could have been  ;)

Does this happen if you are moving fairly slowly?
 Try increasing the slow zone to test things out.

Raised the zone to 3 inches, ran a small program at 20 ipm, still no joy.
