After 1.2101 it's no more needed. The built-in backoff positioning is much faster. It worked fine since 1.2033 (that was the actual version when I wrote it), but now I deleted it from version 2101. It's time for it to retire... :)

:) That's your job on the hardware side to synchronize home switch with the index pulse. Lot of people do it to make homing more precise.

suggestions on best way to achieve this? i already have encoders with z pulse. only way i could see was to use a probing routine?

I do it from teh software side.

Home to switch

Reconfigure tehHome pin.port,active State and direction.

Rehome to teh NEXT encoder index mark moving away from teh switch

Reconfigure teh Home Pin,port,active State and direction to NORMAL.

It would be nice IF this was an internal Function and there were fields to define teh axis index mark
