Z Babystepping Not Working Properly
I posted a few weeks ago here about getting sensorless homing working, which I have gotten working now. However, now, Z babystepping is not working properly. When I use .05mm babystepping, it appears to not work at all, when I tried setting it to 5mm, when I told it to babystep 5mm, it only moves about one. My steps/mm are correct, I'm not sure what could be causing this. Thanks in advance for any help!
Here's my current config.g, let me know if you need any other files.

@3dmakerkid is this baby stepping beneath the build surface?
you can't go below the Z minima you've set in the firmware, which in this case is
M208 X0 Y0 Z0 S1
Set it to Z-1 and you should be able to go lower

@jay_s_uk It's happening when I try to babystep up and down, no matter what my Z position is at that time. I'll switch that and see if it helps though.
If you need much babystepping, I have to ask, is your trigger height correct?
G31 P1000 X35.75 Y18.7 Z.2
@phaedrux I'm starting to wonder if it is, because now the Z probe isn't even triggering during probing moves during G29.
A 0.2mm trigger height is pretty low. The nozzle would be just about to hit the bed. Do you have the probe mounted too high perhaps?
@phaedrux That could be it, I'll look into trying to fix that.
