Power outage and configuration save problems
« on: August 07, 2008, 03:18:48 PM »
I'm a user that leaves the CPU of my Mach3 computer running overnight.  Until last night when I had a power outage or some other reason to reboot.   The computer restarted and Mach3 runs fine, however the machine's configuration didn't save. 

The part that didn't save is Config>Motor Tuning>Steps per unit. 

When I jogged my machine, I noticed the DRO moving at only half the distance.   Which is a problem I had way back when I changed the micro stepping on the driver board.   That was about a month ago.   I changed the hardware drives to microstep, which means I had to change the Mach3 "steps per Inch" setting. 

I can fix the steps problem, but How do a get Mach3 to remember my configuration?    I don't have Mach3 available on this computer, but from memory, I'm sure I saved using the Configuration>Save function.   

Is there something else I must do?   

The other item that didn't save was the Button Editor.  I changed some custom code but that code didn't save either.   

Any help will be appreciated.

Sometimes the Save Config option doesnt work :( but shutting Mach down  changing anything should save it.
