Sorry no, the button assignments is not posted.
Doing so will not benefit current users of the plugin as the button templates uses some new features in the coming release.
There are some limitations in the current release which prevents implementing the new button layouts.

The missing piece before release is the User manual - currently it is in the last commenting stages...

Congrats Joakim !
It really is awesome !

Small question: I need to be able to step jog without pressing a safety button, I went through the manual but could not find how to do it, can you advise?

You could reassign PN, PE, PS and PW buttons to do the step jogging via script code.
Safety buttons for joystick movements are always on - its hard coded into the plugin and part of the design.

So far it seems everybody is happy with the plugin. Since this plugin was designed to  provide cheap solutions for all users, therefore it has the flexibility and  potential to become more sophisticated.

We would like to have your comments and ideas on:

What brand of Gamepad do you use? an attached picture would be very useful.
The manual and your suggested improvements.
Any custom layout that you have designed and to your experience deemed more appropriate, which could be incorporated in the manual.
Keys that you feel should be incorporated in the menu.
A picture of the machine that you are using it with the gamepad.
Any experience that could be shared.

Best regards,
Nader

P.S. Please respond to the new thread announced in Reply #22

I have installed the plugin and buttons work fine, but joystick moves in steps only. I can't get continuous jogging to work. I'm pressing SL and joystick. Any insight?

In your Mach3 screens, check if you have selected the step mode instead of continuous mode for jogging.

While in continuous mode, if I push SL and move joystick, it changes back to step mode by itself. It will not stay in continuous mode. Jogging with keypad works normally.
