So it turns out I'm wrong about the operation of the "hold time" function! Don and Arlen have it correct - see attached a screenshot of the help file confirming this.

That being the case, my advice above is of limited value. In this instance, I'd suggest that your safest bet is a popup confirmation as others have suggested. And as I mentioned previously, make sure you have some method of "unsticking" the jog button in the case that the button release message gets lost.

Thanks for the correction!
