I think that reverse check box him no worky at least on mine with a ESS it don’t just change the step dir from active low to high or high to low in other words if it low make it high if it’s high make it low

That needs fixing before you go any further else bad things will happen when you run gcode
Ref all

Use MDI to tell Mach what tool you are using eg T1 M6
WCS. To put it in its most basic least accurate way put a tool in the spindle jog over until the center of the cutter is over the corner of your work and nearly touching the work ,then zero XYZ. DRO’s now you have the WCS set and the tool length set . For that job only

Hey Stuart,
Depending on the motion controller the Reverse Checkbox will change it. 
I've had to do just as you, change the high to low in the Plugin Config for an ESS here at work, but on the HiCON Integra, I just have to check this checkbox I am referring to. 
Personally, I think the Mach Configure Checkbox should be the Reverse Override and not the plugin pin output, it should communicate that information over to the motion controller.

Hi Ken,
when you are posting just to the left and below the text input pane there is a 'Additional Options' link.
When you are ready to attach a picture or diagram or whatever hit that.

Note that the attached file will have to have a unique name, the website will not accept a file with an indentical name.
Also if you are attaching photos please preprocess them on your PC so they are about 500kB. Many people post pics which are so big
you have to scan around to see it all and often still miss the critical detail that was the purpose of the pic in the first place.

I read your message and looked all over and found nothing for options. I thought well if i wasn;t the dummy before i am now if i have to post that i can't find it. I started to respond and clicked preview and bang i found it.
