HIYA Steve this is JUST a question but could the keyboard plugin be used to do FUNCTIONS other than just jogging things.

Say perhaps Gcode load ???    Cycle start   ,etc

Yes.  It can.  You might have to do a little scripting.  But it is possible.

I thought sense the Keyboard plugin could call an internal function like X+ it should be able to call the internal functions such as Cycle start. 

But it seems it can't without Lua scripting.

Thanks (;-) TP

Steve the keyboard plugin works well here I used it to create the XY joggging  from the arrows keys and the ALT key as the shift key.

Easy peasy , (;-) TP

Not yet.  I have some things in mind for it.  That plugin will get more love soon.
