This is where you talk about Plugins. How they are made and how they work, show examples.

With this plugin it will change how your FeedHold button works.

When Freehold is pressed while gcode is running it will stop(), Z will retract to your safe Z setting and save the followings.

Active Models
X axis position
Y axis position
Z axis position
RPM
Feed Rate
M3 or M4 enabled
M7 or M8 enabled

When done jogging or doing whatever and want to continue with Gcode file press "Cycle Start" A window will appear showing saved settings with a yes or no buttons.

Press "Yes" and Z will go to safe Z and move to that saved position/settings press "Cycle Start" to continue with Gcode file.
Press "No" and Free Hold will continue as it normally did.

To install ...
place file in plugin folder.
Enable FreeHolpPlus
Change FreeHold labelnumber to 12345 with screen edit

Any way to make the retract optional?
It would be very bad if doing something with an undercut.

You need a website with a Donate button so we can send you some $$ for all the good work you are doing. :mrgreen:

Hi Gerry,
I do this for fun, besides in cases like this people would be looking for refund...LOL
I probably will add a pop window on Cycle Start press to choose what settings to use but right now just tweaking.

I deleted the last upload due to the G91 issue, it can be read about here in this thread>>>>>>>>>>>>> viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1544
Robertspark gave some ideas for possible solution in linked thread but haven't had a chance to play with them.

What I did for now is if G91 is active the plugin will give a warning that "no movements can be saved" and set a UCCNC FreeHold, when press ok Gcode will continue.

Instructions are the same as first post.

As always, nice work, always impressed how fast you work with plugins, I've dabbled but find it daunting.

LOL.. thanks for the kind words.

I been using a newer version that will give you options for enabling/disabling the features, also will work with G91. Just wanted to do a lot of testing with it before uploading.

I added some features and updated plugin to work in G91, although If stopped in G91 it will start at Gcode line # it was stopped in. I also added a help button to give a brief description for each checkbox.

This is a perfect example of the old saying " If not broke don't fix it"......... Last minuet decided to save settings to profile for next use. I normally use shut down event and this time put them in the form close event. For whatever reasons unknown to me at this moment they were NOT saving to profile. Occasionally on start up I would loose my colors set in "APPEARANCE" and hotkeys settings. I narrowed down to this plugin being the cause. Trying to read settings that didn't exist would sometimes cause others to not be read/loaded. Regardless...............Fixed

Since this plugin become one of my favorites It's been getting a lot of testing. Another change made is if button is pressed and G-code file not running it will be ignored.
