Hello again, 

I try position the tool by jogging to specific spot. My units are set to millimeters and I would like to proceed in 1, 0.1 or 0.01mm steps. 

However, the steps are 2.54, 0.254 or 0.0254mm. 

Any ideas?

Thanks and cheers
Michel

The following shortcuts are implemented software v3.4.0:

 1-5 change the currently selected axis
- jogs the currently selected axis negative
 = jogs the currently selected axis positive (the + key, but you don't have to press shift)
 [ selects the next biggest step size for the currently selected axis
 ] selects the next smallest step size for the currently selected axis

Note that the step sizes apply to the ones listed in the Jog panel on the Production tab, not the ones in the Conf/Jogging section.

You'll need to check your software version under the Conf tab > Version.

Hi,

You need to update to a recent version of software (after February 2019) as earlier versions didn't have this, but you should be able to just update the units to metric within the software user interface and then jog the same way as mentioned above and it will jog in metric units. Let me know if you have any issues.

Thanks,
Kerry

Jog steps are set under Jogging in the Conf section

You will need version 4.0 or later - you can see the post on updating instructions here.
