Lost Keyboard Jog Control
« on: August 08, 2010, 08:48:54 PM »
I just upgraded to a Gecko G540 and bigger 48VDC steppers on my little machine.  I actually hand modified the setup to get it working, but then I found the XML file from Gecko Drive and installed that.  I had to adjust the kernel rate and steps per inch, but it worked perfectly... Until I tried a keyboard move by using the arrows or shift + arrows.  Somehow I lost the ability to jog control from the keyboard.  Jog control is green and jog still works from the jog control screen reached by hitting tab.  

I went to the hot keys list and everything showed as 999 so I selected each one and hit an arrow key.  It saved a scan code, but it still doesn't work.  Yes, the keyboard is still connected to the computer.  LOL.  

What am I missing.

When I restarted the software the keyboard worked again.  Odd.
