Basic STAR Commands Disappeared


The image shows the “ML_STAR” dropdown menu of the toolbox on one of the two Hamilton robots (STAR and STARlet) we own. I’m not sure what happened, but many of the steps on our STARlet have disappeared, specifically those listed under “Single steps” and I can’t seem to get them back. On our STAR, this dropdown menu has a whole host of additional steps including initialization, CO-RE Grip commands, and a whole section of miscellaneous commands. I have been unable to find the library these are contained in and any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!

Check if your steps are enabled first

  1. Tools>System Config


  1. Microlab STAR Tab > Step Selection


Amazing! I’m not sure why I didn’t think to try this. I checked to make sure that “Low-level Steps” were set to visible in the “Instrument and Smart Steps” menu but it never crossed my mind to check the system config editor. Not sure how most of them were changed to hidden, but they’re back now! Thanks so much.
