After having done some editing for drilling pcbs using the Z axis and now pen plotting with M7 and M9 commands, any chance we could get a couple of little boxes so T2 could have a custom on/off command to replace spindle commands, ie .. so I could replace M3 S255 with

M7

or

Z-5 F200
M3 S200
Z-10 F50
Z0 F200

for example (high speed drill move to just over board, slow drill, fast return), ie multi-line commands if possible.
I think it would add a lot of adapatability but being strings, I realise might be a pita.
even better if the strings could be saved with profile data ..

I think that's possible. I already had it on my list after someone on the "other" forum asked Eleks to make custom buttons in their software and I thought it was a good idea  ;D

That would be awesome, it opens up your market to a lot of other machines I reckon too, things based on ramps or other grbl devices.
