I notice you have pin 16 used for spindle step, spindle Dir and also OutPut 1, doesnt seem like that would be correct to me. Likely not your problem but.....

I Think that was for the previous BOB that I was using. I am manually starting the spindle, I can change this if you think this is a problem. Although it has been set this way for almost a year.

Mach is looking at one pin for three different things, whether it would cause issue I cant say for sure but definitely best not to have it that way.
Dont see anything else unusual about your xml so far.

I see you have the macropump enabled, what code do you have in it?

Looks innocent enough, what exactly is it for?

I used to have a remote button that was used for the ATZ feature. I since turned off the brain and I use the button onscreen. I was having trouble were the ATZ would not get the true zero. Maybe I should eliminate this, but I don't see how it can change the X,Y origin.

Not likely to be the problem but again if you dont use it no point in it taking up resources. Presume your m615 macro doesnt do anything to X or Y axis?

That is the macro for the ATZ remote button, I don't see anything to do with X,Y axis.

Ok so same code as you posted before so no problems with it.

Looks like  a reinstall would be the quickest way. Instead of deleting the Mach3 folder just rename it, that way if you need anything from it it will all be there but set up a new xml in the fresh install as it could be something in the xml causing the issues and you dont want to copy it back.
