Console input line is greyed out in V4

the command line is permanently greyed out no matter what i do.
Appreciate assistance. Advall

Did you establish the connection to the machine in the coms tab?
Does it print the responses from the controller in the terminal section? (like connecting, firmware…)

Sorry fir delay
Yes the machine is COM connected.
Yes the Controller responses are printed out.
It is just that the console window is greyed out.

Regards Advall

Can you please post a screenshot of that area?
