The timing minimums are
DIr Setup 5000 ns
Dir Hold 5000 ns
Step Pulse 2000 ns
Step Space 2000 ns

I would multiply these numbers by 1.5 to guarantee some margin
in the actual Stepconf setup

Thank you. That confirms I understand it at least a little. I really was questioning the Direction Hold.

Typically those settings are in the .ini file

The 1.5 margin is because those are _minimum_ settings
