    Thank you. Yes that suffices as a workaround, although not the most elegant solution.
    Would be much better if we could run a custom homing script or a custom 'squaring' button without closing/changing profiles, and eliminate the possibility of whoever is running the machine forgetting to switch back to the regular working profile.
    I tend to look at homing before a job as good practice, making sure that everything is where it's supposed to be. with this method it can get kinda cumbersome.

    REALLY happy with TNG btw, been working a treat on my smaller machine save a couple small issues I found:
    1.'start from line' seems to change operating into exact stop mode? decelerating and accelerating for each line segment.
    2. on screen jog buttons cause jerky first movement.
    perhaps these two issues relate to the same thing?

    Can build a simple circuit on two chips CD4001BM, and not use the fourth axis.

    True, I did not check, but it should work.
