Keyboard problems while jogging
« on: October 07, 2013, 11:50:54 AM »
Good day again:

I am now having keyboard issues when jogging using Mach3.

The left right arrows move x axis as I assume they should left and right but the up down arrows in my opinion are not working as they should.
Up arrow moves z axis  upwards towards home and the down key moves the y axis towards the y+.

How do I get the machine to move to y- using the keyboard?

I do not want to use hot-keys as I already assigned those to  another function

Thanks again fro all your help

The PgUp and PgDn keys are for Z axis, Up and Down arrows are for Y axis. You can define them from Config menu then System HotKeys.

You last part confuses me a bit however, are you saying you have set the arrows to some other functions?

Thanks once again for your help on this matter:

What I meant was I installed a CNC 4 Axis USB Pendant Manual Remote Control Handle for Mach3 and have utilized hotkeys for it. I just thought keyboard was independent of those setting and they x y etc. settings I activated for the handheld unit were spares

lot to learn but a great way to spend evening
