Can you disable jog option "Z" when in "Continuous Jog" mode?

    Hi all,

    Today I have made a school boy error when using "continuous jog" on "mobile widget" and accidently pressed Z option instead of X/Y, this caused my CMT spoil board bit to crash into stainless steel bolts and ruin two of my inserts.

    I wondered if there was a way to disable "Z" when in continuous jog by way of a macro.
    I recently applied @sharmstr macro hacks @ OpenBuildsHacks/Macros at main · sharmstr/OpenBuildsHacks and wondered if there was a version that does the above for "continuous jog" as well?

    First image showing Z disabled in 100mm jog mode.
    Second image showing Z enabled in continuous jog mode.

    Cheers in advance

    @Peter Van Der Walt this was simple enough to do in the main window, but I havent been able to figure out how to control the jog widget ui via a macro. Do I need to tap into the event listener?

    That ones gonna be tough, as the Macros arent loaded for the mobile widget at all. It is just a jog widget, nothing else, so, not really appropriate to add the full support set.

    Accidents happen :) sorry about the inserts, but the operator isn't entirely blameless (;
