    Default How to jog B axis with keyboard in KmotionCNC?

    I have looked everywhere but I can only seem to find shortcuts for the A axis (+-). Does anybody know what keys I can use or where I can assign new values? thank you!

    Hi Curtis,

    We ran out of easily usable keys so none are assigned for B and C.

    You should be able to use the Screen Editor to reassign hot keys for the Motion Buttons. Note that all 3 buttons in a group (axis and direction) must be assigned the same hot key so they can be selected with HotKey, HotKey+Shift (fast), HotKey+Ctrl (step).

    However currently only HotKeys for XYZA are supported in KMotionCNC. A simple change will include BC. Can you wait for the next release? Or would you like us to make a patch?

    or you make the change yourself. Change:

    // check for Motion Button sets with same Axis, Directions, and HotKeys then handle as group
    for(int axis = 0; axis < 4; axis++)

    to

    // check for Motion Button sets with same Axis, Directions, and HotKeys then handle as group
    for(int axis = 0; axis < 6; axis++)

    Regards
