Hotkey for "step mode" when jogging?
« on: February 04, 2009, 01:52:54 PM »
Every once in a while, i must slip and hit the wrong key when im doing something and the machine goes into step mode instead of velocity for jogging and the machine creeps along at like 2ipm trying to jog 1,10,100 inches etc.
When I hit tab and open the MPG window, i can see that "step" is lit up but when i toggle modes around, i cant get that to shut off unless i restart the program.

How do I shut off step mode while the control is running without restarting?

I remember seeing this problem with an xml I was looking at for someone but cant remember if I found the problem or not. Try upgrading the Rev of Mach if you are not using the latest.
 If you think its a hotkey you could try unplugging your keyboard just in case it has a problem.
