Freezing or Crashing when loading a program - Mach4

If you are loading a program and Mach4 crashes or fails to load the program than it may be an issue with the Gcode file.

One known issue is when you copy the Gcode from a website or PDF file it will garb the hidden characters and cause it to crash.

Examples:
