    I am looking to change from GCode Sender to GRBLPanel. this is mainly because I like the way everything is shown on one page.

    However I don't understand how to send manual GCode commands.

    The MDI Manual command box seems to be the right place and if I send a normal GCode command (e.g. M3 or G28) it works OK

    However I cannot send $ commands. $$ does nothing. I also want to set a $N setting but it doesn't work.

    I had no problems doing this with GCode Sender

    What am I doing wrong?

    What I use it for is sending $$ to get the current settings that I can then save to a file. I have two CNC machines with different settings but use a single controller and it's useful to be able to set the configuration for each machine quickly.

    Never mind, I'll continue to use UGS

    It hides the output from $$ unless you have verbose output turned on; but turning that on gets you all the position polling spam.
    You can temporarily turn off position polling on the settings tab then turn on verbose on the Interface tab.
