    Check Ctrl+Shift+i > Console for errors while doing that?

    I been away from my router for some time and just started a new project. I allowed the upgrade to 1.0.284.

    It seems to run great at boot but becomes progressively sluggish to input or machine position status. After a 40 min job completed the 3d view was 3 minutes behind. And jogging commands sometimes execute but with massive delays.

    I seem to need to kill the program and reconnect, but I then need to home the machine effectively loosing my work peice reference.

    Please advise

    1) try after a fresh reboot
    2) you can selectively disable/enable features under Application Diagnostics on the Troubleshooting tab to see what causes it for you

    Work coordinates are saved. You dont lose them.

    No issue here on latest version on two 96 min jobs, I did see sluggishness and timeouts on my old pc but upgraded to a gaming laptop with SSD and zero issues since

    Just to be clear, and maybe you understand this already, but you can power everything down and you wont lose your work coordinates. They are saved in the controller, not the PC.

    I noticed something the other day running version 1.0.282. After leaving the program open on my computer for a day but inactive, it became sluggish. After checking, CONTROL was consuming 3+ Gb of RAM on my computer. I closed it and re-opened and loaded the same file and it was back down to 250 Mb and stayed there.

    CTRL+Shift+I does not do anything. Locked up tight... After force quit, I can get into console session. But Im thinking it does not save passed errors, once it is forced quit.

    CTRL+Shift+I when you first start up. Then go into your settings and try to reproduce the lockup condition. Hopefully you'll be able to catch any errors in the console then.

    that is what i have been fighting with and hoping some sort of feature is added that backs up maybe the last 10 seconds of gcode and machine settings so it can resume where it left off...

    Openbuilds Control keeps trying to update but comes up with the error that 64-bit Windows is required. Is the control software no longer compatible with 32-bit Windows?

    hello everyone, I have a cnc with a black box, everything is installed, but when I want to connect it to my mac (on Majave 10.14.16) it only offers "Bluetooth-incoming-port" so I have install the driver, it worked! but the next day it won't work, even when reinstalling the driver, I tested them all, and I even changed the usb cable, but it doesn't work anymore, do you have any advice to give me? thank you (ps I'm French sorry if there are any errors)
