ShapeOko 3 do not reacts on Feed Speed

G-code generated with Inkscape.
Optimized manually with Camotics and Notepad ++

"4 slot test" (milling 4x 10mm slots with different feeding speeds: 1; 5; 10 and 20 mm per min)
showed that SO3 worked with a constant feed speed of 20 mm per min.

Can SO3 read G-Code Feed Speed Commands?
The example of code line:

G00 Z 5.0000
G00 X 0.0000 Y 0.0000

G00 X 0.0000 Y 0.0000
G00 Z 1.0000
G01 Z -5.0000 F 1.0000(Penetrate)
G01 X 0.0000 Y 10.0000 Z -5.0000
G00 Z 5.0000
G00 X 10.0000 Y 00.0000
G00 Z 1.0000
G01 Z -5.0000 F 5.0000(Penetrate)
G01 X 10.0000 Y 10.0000 Z -5.0000

Yes, it should --- the only times they should get ignored are when the line is too long (doesn't look to be the case here).

The machine can only accelerate so quickly though, and tries to do so smoothly, and to come to a stop at a controlled speed which allows precise and accurate placement --- I suspect it's that requirement which is limiting the speed.
