Press R and you will get FAST JOG and to turn it off press R again :) You can see if it is on by pressing Tab...

Hi Brian,
Where can I look to see your VBscript for this "R" 100% jog activate/deactivate? 
Whenever a script is written I like to examine it and hope that some of it will sink in.

Thanks,

Go to screen 50 and you should see the button just over the slow jog rate with LED's on each side.

Keep looking and you are going to have my job :)

Bloy,

I think I picked up the same keyboard - no shift key. I downloaded the "fast jog" 1024 file and checked it out. It worked great as long as I was on continuous jog to begin with and wanted to speed things up for a bit. I usually keep my jogging in step mode and hit the shift key to go rapidly to the general area, then I use step to hone in. I modified the VB script to save the prior speed percentage as well as the step/continuous state, so that the "r" key returns to the prior stepping mode as well.  BTW, I used the "insert" key for the ""r" function since this is on the keyboard.

Hi Brian,

I have lost my screen after trying the above screen, all I get now is a blank screen.

O No! You killed it :)

Can you see the screen set 1024.set in the Mach3 directory? If you can go under View/Load Screen and load the 1024.set...

 :'( Rats!  I didn't mean to kill your system. I hate it when that happens. A thousand apologies to you, all your ancestors, and your present family!   I downloaded the same file to my machine to make sure I sent the correct .set and ran it on two separate computers. Try it again - you can always get back to a "good" system through the "load screens" dialog. It works for me. There's obviously something important different between us. I am honestly not sure what did it to you. When did it croak? I want to check it out so no-one else gets messed up. It'd sure suck to kill my system in the middle of a part.
