And if you put the Step active setting back to what you had previously do you still get this?

Do you mean the high/low setting or the step pulse in the motor tuning?

I believe my high/low settings are correct because I am able to get motion with step pulse at zero now. But I have tried the step and direction pulse on different settings. Seems to be consistent in getting off when changing directions.

Do the DROs show this out of position?
Attach your xml and I will have a look.

i noticed it was still on the wrong version. i went in and renamed the free version i had downloaded and think i set the pins, ports, inputs, and outputs the same as the wrong version, but getting no motion again.  i am close to pulling all my hair out.  here is the new xml that i am getting no motion from. thank goodness you have a lot of patience.

You can find whatever xml was working for you by going to the xmlsbackups directory of where Mach 
is installed. You'll find a copy of the old xml file there.

The old xml file was the pirate one.  I have motion again with trial version. Still not moving the same in one direction as the other.  I am trying to set Y axis first.  It will move long in one direction and short in the other. If I get one direction calibrated the other direction has been off around .010
