I think you should bite the bullet and replace them all for PNP.

Cheers, Phill.

Thats not really advice I want to hear! Anyway, now I've replaced both of the home switches so the limit switches should never be needed :S

I deliberately offset it on both axes so it could reach 0,0 plus it was easier to mount that way!
Gmoccappy supports macro buttons so I've put it there for now. I think I'll try and move it to one of the buttons Phill has added to the Plasmac front screen. He has one that opens halshow but it can also be opened from the settings page So I was hoping to put it there.

Phill, thanks what about an example to call a g code subroutine file? I seem to remember the first version of plasmac I installed had one but you changed it!

Have you tried
o<my_sub_routine> call
I'm kinda thinking it should work...
Cheers, Phill.

EDIT: Yes it does work, I added it to the docs.
