Saving fine here.
Are you using an old version of Mach? Might be worthwhile updating.

No I just loaded it, but will write over it.  You mean to say when you enter values in dir and step boxes in the motor tuning dialog, , click ok, then come back, they are what you saved previously?

Yes they save for me.
So you have the latest version of Mach? XML seemed to be an old version.

Ok fixed it.  The software was old, updating fixed that saving issue.
The lost steps were due to a disconnected cable shield on the axis cable inside the controller box, between the motor driver card and the motor cable output jack.
Nothing like a shield disconnected, acting like an antenna. sheesh.   I think all is well, thanks SO much for the quick help, much appreciated.
