Continuous Jogging mode with arrow keys doesn't work
« on: August 16, 2014, 08:26:48 AM »
Hello,

as a newbie I've just configured my lathe and successfully machined my first part. But I've still a problem with jogging with the arrow keys. If I go to manual mode, switch "Jog on", nothing happens when I press the arrow keys. With "Jog inc" the axis moves, but not in continuous mode. What do i wrong?

Seems to work fine here in simulation. If you attach your xml I will see if there is anything obviously wrong in it.

I have the same problem in simulation mode with the default xml file. If I press any arrow key, the feedrate jumps to 0 and jumps back to whatever is defined if i release the arrow key. And if the feedrate is zero, then the axis doesn't move. But is there any other feedrate for jogging? Or any option?

There're two seperate issues here - sorry. Why the default file doesn't run, doesn't really matter. I redid the complete configuration from a blank new file and it worked fine until i used the external MPG. So, my problem is how I return from MPG jog mode to keyboard jog mode?

Problem solved! The "Jog Mode" button actually toggles and includes MPG jog mode on/off, but that is not shown. Now I just have to modify the surface and include a "Jog MPG" LED.
