how about adding in a copy configuration , or backup to file
yes i know we can all use the keyboard but once you have a known good configuration , it would be helpful to know you have it all backed up or can copy to a new config for further modification
including all the hidden files

actually all you need to do is load the config that you want to copy in pncconf and change the config name on the basic page and then run to the end.
It will save the config with the name you picked.

Peter, as a new user what is the best way for me to get the 5i25+7i76 configured with steppers?
Thanks, Ben

Very crudely its:

First download EMC 2.5 (either build from source or get from buildbot)

run the hm2-stepper-5i20 demo from the EMC menu (this will copy the HAL and ini files to your
~/emc/configs/hm2-stepper directory)
Then copy the 5i20.ini in the ~/emc/configs/hm2-stepper directory to a file called 5i25 .ini
now edit this file and delete the firmware parameter in the config='xxxx" line
and change the 5I20 references to 5I25
You now have a very basic set of config files.
You may need to delete some GPIO references in the hm2-stepper.hal file as they are not appropriate to the 5I25
then run the 5i25 hm2-stepper demo from the menu...

I will have a basic 5i25 + 7i76 config up on my web site later this morning that you can build on. As soon as I'm done I'll post a link. When I'm happy with it I'll add it to 2.5.

Well, for some strange reason the upload of the file failed but reported a good upload.

I uploaded it again...

John can you post the complete HAL pin list with the 7i76 connected? or do you have two connected?

If possible could you show separately the pinouts when using different modes?
