I can repeat it here Sam.  I spoke to Greg about this a while back and was supposed to talk to Brain and see if he had any ideas and forgot to..  :-[  If Hood can't repeat it though I think it may be something in our setups.  No idea if this will make any difference or not but what kind of keyboards are we all running?

USB here.

Also, what screen sets are we all running?  I think I tested with the standard 1024 set but will double check.

OK USB wireless keyboard and standard screenset here.
Can you try changing the name of your plugin folder then creating a new one and only putting the SS plugin in it?

Hood tried a few more things and can't get it to show up for him so I'm going to try to do some test in the morning.  If you don't here from me by noon, remind me.

I had this same problem.  I fixed it by messing around with continious or step button highlighted under the pendant flyout controller.

I don't remember exactly what I did to fix it... but I just kept clicking and unclicking until it went away. Works flawless now.

I think I found the BUG.

The little flyout pendant in Mach... when you have it in step mode it doesn't stop. When in continous mode it works like it should.

Jonny, your input is appreciated! However....I'm always in cont. mode, and still get the runaway.
Hood, I will try that tomorrow when I'm in the shop.
Thanks guys!

I think I know whats going on.

I think it is going to be a step mode hot key assignment.  Here is the way to get it to repeat.

Open the MPG fly out so you can see it.
Set your slow jog rate low to start with for safety.
In cont. mode.
Start jogging with an arrow key and hold it down
Press the Ctrl (control) key and hold it down.  You will see step and cont. mode are both now active.
Let off the arrow key
Let of the Ctrl Key, the axis should continue to jog.
Pressing either direction arrow key for that axis will stop it.

My set up uses a pendant that selects velocity only or multi step for the mpg and my (Hoods) screen does not have the MPG fly out.  I never use con't mode and can't even activate it using my (Hoods) screen. So I would have never found it in normal use.
