Does Wizard Rewrite the cncm.hom file?

Post by Gary Campbell » Wed Feb 07, 2018 2:22 pm

I was able to make a few changes to the cncm.hom (homing macro) that works well. Later when working to set up my tool touch device I went to the wizard and set my tool touch off input to "probe detect", saved those setting and exited. Now it seems that my cncm.hom file has changed back to the "default"?

What am I missing?

Yes it does. I keep a copy of my custom home file for easy copy and pasting

next version of wizard will have a Home "custom" selection..so when you select that the wizard knows you have your own custom home program and will not overwrite it. :-) but for now..just copy your custom one back into the cncm directory after you use the wizard.

Thanks guys, at least I blamed the wizard not gremlins or dementia. " I could have sworn I changed that homing routine!"
