Mach 4 keyboard increment jogging randomly swaps to inches?
« on: January 22, 2019, 03:58:05 AM »
Hey all, Using mach 4. my gcode is in metric, my machine setup units and units mode is in metric. But sometimes when I go to jog using the keyboard in increment mode I set it to say 1mm but the machine moves 1inch. which can be quite scary when not expected and near something!

I close and re-open Mach 4 and its back to normal.

Is this a known problem? or any ideas what could be causing it?

Anything I could try/check to nut it out?

Now im in the habit of always testing it out first in the direction away from my stock to make sure its in metric but I should not have to

Is there a G20 anywhere in any of the buttons or macros that you use?

Hi,

Yes there has been a few threads discussing that problem, the last about four months ago. Smurph promised he would
have a look at it for the next build and I've not heard of it since so I assume he looked at the problem and resolved it in
the latest builds.

What build Mach4Hobby are you using?
