Good news, everybody!
HSMAdvisor now has a G and M-Code reference page:
Also in this update, I have fixed error messages that appeared after the clean install.
These weren't critical as they appeared only once, but I assume they caused a few new users not to continue using the app, which is quite unfortunate.
The latest update can be downloaded from here: https://hsmadvisor.com/download
Thanks to everybody who sends feedback and suggestions!
The FSWizard app, available on iOS, Android, and web browsers, recently received a substantial update for its G and M code reference page.

Filtering was added to the Cut Cloud tool list, making it easy to find the tools you are looking for:
You can filter by the library name, Tool type, and/or by a plain-text search.
Additionally, the list now checks the version and updates in the background, which means the page now appears almost immediately. No more waiting for 15-20 seconds to download all your tools each time you open it.
Thanks to everybody who made improvement suggestions and feature requests!
