What could be the reason for the buttons "select a tool by number", "change tool with the command M61" and "change tool to the selected one" in the tool editor to be inactive? I have two configs, one that has been made for a test setup on the bench where the buttons are active and another one that I'm working on for an actual machine where they are inactive, but I couldn't find the reason so far.

Kind regards
Martin

The release is 3.0.8.2.

With the one config where the buttons are active they are active whether it's homed or not, therefore I wasn't thinking about that. If it is supposed to work only when the machine is homed the problem may solve itself once the other one is hooked up to the machine and working.

Check if the one that have the button enabled has an entry NO_FORCE_HOMING in the INI file, in that case alle button are enabled directly. If the machine is not homed, and you change a tool, the machine does not now at whitch position it is, so if you want to go to a tool change position, it might travel to a limit.
