First of all - really impressive update of the documentation! I am very pleased to see that now the settings and functions are described much more in detail which should ease everybody's live! Than you very much for your effort :-)

One note however - this is not a show-stopper, but you may want to update the table of contents at the end because it is not actual. I personally would put it at the beginning, but this is just a personal preference. I guess also that it could be possible that the page numbers are acting as hyperlinks that point to the actual pages.

Best regards,

Evgeni

Evgeninikolov:
Table of contents is now updated and published online:
Table of contents is at the end because when it was on the beginning it turned out as little chaotic.

Section 3.1.3 - How to connect and setup Output board ?

The connection settings for the Mk2/4 are confusing, as it appears to ask you to connect three output connections (OUTPUT1, OUTPUT2 and OUTPUT7) to four input connections ("S", "1", "2", "3").

The FAQ for the Output Board correctly explains that you use "1", "2" and "3" if using the three relays, and "S", "1" and "2" if using a VFD and two relays.

Also, the screenshot, where is states "Set output pins like this:" shows the Spindle On/Off control set to pin3 and the Speed control set to pin 6.

Again, the FAQ has correct screen shows for the Mk2/4, showing pins 1,2 and 7 in use.

Are you kidding - nothing chaotic here - table of contents belongs at the beginning of manual - index belongs at the end - case closed. :|
