OK, I will try to get it out today. I have verified the bug and a potential fix, but need time to test well. Doing as I suggested will allow normal operations for now. No other users have reported this issue. Thank you for your report.

Sorry, have reread you message. Seems you have found a bug. Try again, but DO NOT click the "$C" button. Make sure it stays reading "Inactive" as above and you should be OK. I will get a fix out later today. My apology and thanks for letting me know.

Re: Upgraded to Picsender 3.4.2 - now with problems?

What is your "previous setup?" An earlier version of PicSender? What you are describing sounds as though grbl is in a "locked" state waiting for the homing ($H) function to be initiated. You should get a startup message in the Messages box that reads, "Reference Home ($H) is...

Re: Continuously Jog

Happy to report to future readers that Joe's issue was caused by a custom compiled version of grbl that had been loaded onto his system instead of a standard version. After updating to the latest official release of grbl (ver. 1.1h 20190825), Joe reports all good now.

Re: Continuously Jog

Sorry Joe, I can find nothing in PicSender to cause you not to be able to use continuous jog with your X/Y axes. I did fix a couple of more things I found and have posted version 3.4.2 for downloading and updating. Please try it when you can and let me know how it does. I am not giving up and will g...

Re: Continuously Jog

Thank you. I do not have a Demon controller, but that should not matter. My test machine is running the same grbl you are (1.1f) and I even used your grbl settings (except for $3=6 - I have to use $3=2 to reverse the Z axis).

Doing more testing. Will post back later.
