Hello Kurt,
I encountered an error in Probe_screen. If I go to tools and enter a new tool and in the comment I use a german
Umlaut key (Ä), I get an error message and I only can restart the whole program. (Not a big deal, if you know,
but maybe the screen could catch "faulty" characters...)

'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe4' in position 6: ordinal not in range(128)

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/joe/qtpyvcp/qtpyvcp/widgets/input_widgets/tool_table.py", line 30, in displayText
return "{}{}".format(self._padding, value)
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe4' in position 6: ordinal not in range(128)

Not an issue but maybe a "user bug" :) , when I started using probe_screen I could jog continously, now I only can jog according to the buttons (max 5mm), which is a bit annoying if you want to go long distances and have jog 20 times.
Maybe you know what happened, or how I can easily come back to continous jogging (I could maybe add a button "continous" like in axis...)?
cheers
Joerg

Thank you for the bug report!
Unicode should be valid in the tooltable remarks section, I will fix this.

Try adding JOG to the beginning of your jog increments in the INI. This should give you a continuous jog option.
The jog increments widget needs to be reworked to make it more flexible..

Cheers,
Kurt

That was easy - if you know... Now I can jog around again...
If error messages pop up I'll keep you informed.
You still have the YAML file for configuring keys in mind? ;)
Thanks again
