    ? about linux candcnc skip touch offs and disable hold

    I sent this to Lance at candcnc but haven't received a reply yet so I thought Id run this by you guys and see what you think.
    I have to put check in skip touch offs and also disable hold to get my table to cut. if I don't it travels to the first hole and touches the metal, the feather sensor lights lights and that's as far as it goes. I also get this error message when I open linux up. any thoughts on what I need to do.

    1. You have disable hold checked
    2. It looks like you have a stuck key on your keyboard

    I think he found his issue. It is a retrofit Gary did on an older Star Lab

    I found the issue, it was my Z limits set to tight. I opened it up to the max and it worked fine. I'm using Linux Commandcnc ver. 0.9.2. Linux is new to me but seems user friendly. It has a message icon that tells the user what is happening in the program and any problems. The answer to the Z limits was there, I just didn't know enough to click on the icon.
