[22:26:19] <jepler> I've "fixed" that a number of times in the past; I wonder how long it's been broken this time
[22:32:31] <jt-plasma> what is the expected behavior of the num lock?
[22:37:56] <SWPadnos> on theory, it swaps the numeric keypad between numbers and an additional cursor keypad
[22:38:06] <SWPadnos> s/on/in/
[22:40:36] <jt-plasma> so when the num lock is on the jog should not work?
[22:41:10] <SWPadnos> right, the keys should be numbers at that point (which theoretically would select FO percentages or axis numbers)
[22:41:18] <SWPadnos> whatever the 0-9 keys do
[22:44:18] <jt-plasma> ah, ok
[22:45:17] <jt-plasma> 1 and 2 are broken too, they select an axis
[22:46:06] <jt-plasma> now I don't understand... 1-9 are used for two things
[22:46:53] <SWPadnos> heh, that can be a problem too :)
[22:47:07] <alex_joni> it depends on mode
[22:47:15] <alex_joni> wether manual or MDI or Auto
[22:47:29] <alex_joni> I think in Auto it's feed override
[22:47:50] <jt-plasma> I'm in manual and 1 and 2 select and axis and 3-9 set feed override
[22:48:09] <SWPadnos> on a lathe?
[22:48:36] <jt-plasma> axis sim
[22:48:56] <micges> it doesn't select axis
[22:49:17] <micges> it's jogging and jogging automatically select jgged axis
[22:50:01] <jt-plasma> I'm using the number keys on the top of the keyboard
[22:50:12] <SWPadnos> no, the number keys are supposed to select an axis, for use with the +/- jog keys
[22:50:17] <SWPadnos> at least sometimes
[22:50:45] <SWPadnos> jt-plasma, what does 0 do on that config?
[22:51:00] <jt-plasma> set feed override to 100%
[22:51:07] <SWPadnos> oh, hmmm
[22:51:32] <SWPadnos> well, there goes that theory :)
[22:51:47] <SWPadnos> I suspect that a lathe would only have the 1 key select an axis, and 2-0 would still be FO
[22:51:50] <jt-plasma> 3-9 sets feed override and `,1,2 select an axis
[22:52:49] <SWPadnos> ah
[22:52:55] <SWPadnos> that makes sense
[22:53:20] <jt-plasma> I'm glad it does to you :)
[22:53:20] <SWPadnos> only the keys from existing axes "override" the FO function
[22:53:45] <jt-plasma> ?
[22:53:56] <SWPadnos> like Alex said, it should be modal
[22:54:06] <SWPadnos> in one mode, the 0-9 keys should be FO
[22:54:22] <SWPadnos> in another mode, some of them are re-tasked as jog axis selectors
[22:54:47] <SWPadnos> but that retasking is only done for those axes that exist, so the remaining number keys still have their FO function
[22:55:06] <SWPadnos> if you had a 9-axis machine, only the 9 and 0 keys would do FO still
[22:55:16] <SWPadnos> (' through 8 would be jog axis selectors)
[22:55:25] <SWPadnos> at least that's my theory :)
[23:03:49] <jt-plasma> ok, I'm glad you understand LOL
[23:05:44] <jt-plasma> in MDI mode all keystrokes are sent to the MDI command box...
[23:16:33] <jepler> wellll I hope there were no technical or other inaccuracies in that mail I just sent
[23:17:15] <jepler> as for the discussion I missed here, it's ` that selects the X axis or joint 0
[23:17:45] <jepler> but when a program is running, all the number keys on the top row set feed overrides, even if they select an axis in manual mode with no program running
[23:18:16] <jt-plasma> ok, that makes sense
[23:18:28] <jt-plasma> jepler: thanks
[23:18:30] <jepler> the `12 thing we copied from tkemc if I recall correctly
