Hotkeys

How do I find out what hotkey to use?  (for Feedrate, Spindle, etc.)

For an example to change the feedrate while a program is running. While I am cutting a part I may what to fine tune the feed. Right now I need to click the mouse and while I am watching the machine I sometimes miss.

How are you wanting to set this up, are you going to be fitting external buttons or are you meaning just using the hotkeys on the keyboard? If using external buttons are you using the OEM Triggers or are you going to use a keyboard emulator?

Keyboard for now. Just knowing the dafult keys for overriding faderate and spindle speed nice for now.

F10 is decrease and F11 is increase feedrate   / resets feedrate.
You should find most of these in the Customising manual.

Num pad + and - is for the spindle. I found it by accident, didn't know about that manual.
Thanks Hood

If you cant find the hotkey for a certain button in the docs or on the customising WIKI you can open the screenset in Screen4. Double click on the button you want and look at the  hotkey number, you can then look at an ASCII table and it will let you know what key on the keyboard should be pressed.
