Goto Config/System hot keys and make sure they are set correctly.

You also need to have a feed speed entered or the jog will be really really slow. On MDI enter F20 for a feed rate of 20 mm or inches.

Thank you every one!

I've checked confyg\ hotkeys. They are 39, 37, 38, 40, 33, 34. Seems to be OK.
I've changed feed to 20 mm/min.
No result. The arrow keys don't work.

Please, help.

Check your Num lock / Scroll lock.

Reassign the keys using the pop up dialog instructions maybe.

Stumer,

          Does your keyboard arrow keys work with any other software? For example in notepad can you move the cursor using the arrow keys?

Charlie_M,

Arrow keys work with other applications. Pay attention, please, that G-code doesn't execute also. It means that Mach works incorrectly.
