Hi.
I'm  wondering if it is posible to have a home and limit switch indicator in the QTplasmaC GUI.
may be the Jog butons can be set to red when the machine hits the home or limit  switches.

It does show arrows in front of the DRO axis values, but still, it would be nice to have during testing and tuning.
From experience, i never needed them as the machines never hit limits during use, if all is set properly.

I do think this is the right approach. Limits should never be hit. With shared home/limit switches, move off the home switch with a HOME_OFFSET during homing so the limit erroris not triggered when exiting homing.
