MDI Tab missing
« on: March 22, 2018, 11:03:39 AM »
I am setting up Mach 4 with an ESS. I have followed all of the steps so far. I am working on the spindle and having no luck getting it running. One of the things I have found people discussing online is to use the MDI tab to enter commands. But the tab is missing. How do I get it to show up.

I am using a demo of Mach 4 hobby. Do I need a different version, or need to get the license for it to work?

Are you sure it's missing?
It is in the same spot the G Code is displayed.  You will see the "G Code" tab and the "MDI" tab there.

Demo mode will time out after a random amount of time. Usually 5 - 15 minutes. When it times out all outputs stop working.
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D
