Hi! I’m new to Lightburn and laser engraving in general (I have lots of experience with 3D printing, tho). Today I’ve been exploring the keyboard shortcuts for the software and I ran into a slight problem:
When I use the keypad numbers to jog the laser with the “continuous jog” option turned ON and I keep the key pressed (let’s say 8 to travel up), I don’t get a smooth continuous movement, what I get instead is just a jerky step movement. My distance is set to 1mm. It operates the same way as if I had the “continuous jog” option turned OFF and tried to move it with the onscreen button, pressing it multiple times very fast.
When I try the same movement with the onscreen button, also with the “continuous jog” option turned ON I get smooth movement for as long I keep the mouse pressing said button. This is how the option should work normally, I imagine.
I intend to use a wireless keypad to jog and control the software while standing next to my laser, so this is a bit of an issue for me.
Am I missing something? Is it some kind of bug?
I’m on a Macbook Pro late 2014, running High Sierra and I have installed the latest version of Lightburn (1.2.01). I’m using an original wired Apple full keyboard, if that helps.
I appreciate your help!
