arrow keys for jog but make sure you have the Jog enabled. You will see the button on the main screen lower middle "Jog On/Off" make sure you see the green surrounding this button, if you dont click it and you should then be able to jog. If you still cant jog press the Tab key and make sure you dont have the slow jog set to 0% or have the Jog Mode on MPG or step.
