Title: Mach3 Pendant Question
Post by: marklazarz on April 27, 2016, 06:56:29 PM
I use the pendant in the photo for controlli ng my CNC.  If I hold the Shift Key on my keyboard, a pendant direction key moves at full speed.  If I hold the Control Key on my keyboard, a pendant direction key moves a step at a time.  Does anyone know how to program the "Single Step" key on the pendant to act as the keyboard Control Key so I don't have to do stretchin g exercises when jogging an axis?

I have the same unit.
I THINK if you jiggle the Shift key 7 times Windows will ask you if you want it to be 'sticky'. This is fo people with disabilit ies. This might work.
