Z-Axis no Ref configurable

Hi everyone,I used to work with linuxcnc 2.7.1 for some time on my self build 3-Axis mill. All axis have Ref-switches and everything worked fine, referencing and working.I got a new PC and wanted to upgrade to the newest linuxcnc. Installation went perfectly smooth and the system is incedibly fast and such.Stepconf however doesn't let me configure a Ref-switch for my Z-axis. X and Y - no problem, I can configure them as on my old system and both axis reference without any problem. On the setup page for the Z-axis however is everything around the ref switch greyed out, 
I attached 2 pictures. These configurations were standard from stepconf and even then the Z-axis is greyed out. Any Idea anyone?

Thanks,
Sebastian

You have not assigned a pin for the Z axis switch in the pinout page.

OK then seems to be an issue with StepConf, probably language, but that is only a guess.

Hi everyone,

it's getting a bit more weird today. I managed to use my ref switch in the Z axis as I set it to Ref Z alone without the maximum limit. Set so the axis referenced without any problem.
But then another problem occured: I can't start my spindle, Pin 9 won't be switched, regardless what I try. I tried the Live-version in english without success, both problems persist: Z-axis references only as Ref-alone and my spindle won't start.

I tried the 2.8.4 as a Live-version and everything runs smooth and fine, the Z-Axis and also the spindle.

I thjink I'll install the 2.8.4 this weekend and go on working with it. But the problems that I experience with the actual 2.9.2 are really strange to say the least.

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Sebastian

No reaction. Gmoccapy assumes that the spindle is running but nothing...
