Bug: defaut g-codes stopped showing after firmware upgrade



  • After upgrading from 1.21 fo 2.02RC1 (and DWC 1.22.3) the list of default g-codes that would appear on the top of the screen stopped working.

    I can't see a way to invoke the drop down list that would appear before.

    The list is still populated in the configs:

    Is this a bug?

    Thank you!



  • Hi,

    I think I recall reading it is just a different approach.

    Anything you enter will become part of a history you can reference.

  • Hummmm. I typed several G commands there already and none of them shows up when starting a new G command. However, if I type "M", the list of M default g-codes command appears:

    I don't believe this was intentional because it was easier before, I would not have to type a letter, just open the dropdown list and click on an item.

    This is in fact working as intended. Every gcode entered into the console will be remembered and will pop up as an auto complete option.

    I'm not a huge fan of the change either.



  • Well, it indeed does that. I went to the console and run "M119" and "M122", and when I typed "M" again at that box it showed:

    It seems that the "Default G-Codes" on the Configs "List Items" will always appear first and then the remembered ones from the console.

    I miss the possibility to open the history drop down list by clicking instead of by typing.
