Log is attached. The focus routine starts at 2022-01-31T14:57:15.033 CST. As you can see there's no command that pauses guiding. I didn't have this problem before I upgraded to the latest KStars build.
Thanks. I do have the Main Scope the same as the Guide Scope because I'm using OAG. I tried deleting all of the KStars data files I could find and re-installing. It brought back suspended guiding but after using it for a night, it's back to not suspending again.
Yes, that worked. Found it out by switching to internal guider changing the guide scope and then going back to phd. This time for some reason the suspend guide command worked with primary scope selected. Weird because when I tested with simulators it worked with guide scope selected. Either way, we now know where to look for this issue. Thank you.
