Problem with cncjob_coordinate_format

I changed the G-Code format to 3 following decimals as it was mentioned in the docs with the shell command, because my controller won't take 4 decimals. So I did it for x and y values and it worked. But when I do this with the shell command for the z value (have not found it in the docs) Flatcam gets screwed up and won't let me generate any plots or G-Codes anymore. How can I set the 3 decimals for Z values properly and fix my Flatcam settings?

Hmm, there is no feature for that. I might add it some day. It's a bug in your controller though. This is easy to fix in a text editor. The Z changes are all to the same heights, so it's joust a couple of replacements in the g-code file. JP
