Jogging A Axis ???
« on: March 02, 2019, 04:28:19 PM »
I just installed and configured a 4th axis on the mill. Everything is setup and working perfectly. I can use MDI to move the axis but I cannot figure out how to jog the axis with the keyboard. Is there a set of keys that are already configured like X, Y, and Z or do I have to manually setup the A axis with the system hot keys.

read somewhere it was - and + but that did not work.

I also tried to search "jogging A axis" but the forum won't search unless all words are more than one character so that was zero help.

Thanks in advance.

Page up and down is the Z axis.

Configured the A axis in system hotkeys and it worked. Then X, Y, and Z wouldn't work so I configured all 4 axis in system hotkeys and all is good now. Before this all were 999.

BTW the A axis is now + and -
