Not sure if this is a bug or if it's just something in my script..... if I have my machine disabled and hit a keyboard jog key and then I enable the machine it will start moving the axis even though the jog key is not being pressed anymore.

When in the screen edit mode, if I try to type an incorrect format type into the format property of a DRO such as "1f%" and hit enter, it causes the program to crash and close and I lose all of my work. very frustrating when I am a little lisdexic sometimes.

When you cut and paste a static text field from one page to another in the screen edit mode, the text field looses its BOLD style setting.

Update: This problem seems to occur only when the controls are in a panel.

Re: Mach 4 Bug Reports -- Homing issues
« Reply #315 on: April 05, 2015, 07:53:31 PM »
I am using mach4 with ESS
The machine will home but:
1. Homing speed is extremely slow. It does not matter what speed percentage I set in the config homing config screen, it alwasy is just a crawl. I have not measured theactual speed but it is << 0.1 inches / sec and rapids are currently set for 300 IPS.
What would be desirable would be a routing to go rather quickly to home (if not already at home), back off then crawl in for accurate stop
2. The home offset does not seem to work.  My Z axis trips the home switch when it is all the way up (roughly +6.5" compared to the table top). I cant get the home offset to set a value, it is always 0 when homed.
I have saved these values and restarted multiple times but no luck.

In the ESS config you can set the to and return speeds for homing.

Later plugins are rumored to respect the home off distance.
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

Is there a fully functional plugin yet? The website still has the initial Beta plugin, several months old, which doesn't include many features.

I got a test plugin from Greg a few weeks ago that was a breeze to setup and seems rock solid with the very limited testing I did. But, it was a test plugin. I know Greg is planning to post a new plugin soon. What features will be or not be implemented is something Greg would have to answer.
