No

It has been noted that setting such as: DEFAULT_LINEAR_VELOCITY are in the [TRAJ] section rather then the [DISPLAY] section.
It seems stepconf (PNCconf?) has been doing this as well.

Related:
Some of the sample INI files have settings that don't make sense.
eg axis.ini has MAX_LINEAR_VELOCITY in the [DISPLAY] section set as 1.2,
but the [AXIS] sections all have max velocities of 5.

We probably should audit linuxcnc to confirm our docs descriptions and then correct the samples and config wizards.

    In this case the wording is I believe, rather poor as I think that
    represents the maximum "ratio" that the slider can command. I've had that
    set at 1.5 for quite a while.

    Cheers, Gene

    No it is not a ratio or percentage.
    It's an absolute limit of units per second.

    so 1.5 would be 90 IPM.

    Seems we need to work on the docs some more :)

      If that is the case Chris, yes. My machines can't do 90 ipm in their
      wildest dreams.

        It also seems I miss-spoke, in my mills .ini, those figures are all set it
        the range of .15 up to .29, or 29 ipm, and thats fast enough to be stall
        trouble.
