M6 goes to line 0
« on: November 12, 2013, 08:55:59 AM »
Mach 3.043.066

When M6 is called in gcode, the Line # goes to 0.  Turns out this is caused by using "GotoSafeZ ()" in M6start.m1s.

Is it just "just one of those things" or what?

I agree, Hood, and it shows more and more everyday I try and use additional features.  Do you have a recommendation for what version would be good to roll back to (using this on a gantry router)?  I wish I could remember what I was using before I updated on this machine.  I only just updated another machine from 2.63.  That version was good for a long time!

I had picked 058 because most of the changelog after that was lathe stuff.  But I will take a copy of 057 too just in case. (total PITA not having non-phone internet in the shop).  Thx.
