There is a "Run From Here" button near the bottom left of the screen.
You could also use the "Edit Gcode" button. Delete the code that has already run and then do "Save As" and save to a new name.
That way you don't lose your original file.

I tried the "Run From Here" button with no luck.
What did work is the "Set next line" button. Scroll through the Gcode until you are at the point you want to restart from.
Leave a little of the code that has already run as a starting buffer. Jog the tool into position (Very Important) then click
the "Set Next Line" button. Click cycle start and the program will start from that point.
I still think the best way is editing the Gcode because then you will have all of the start up code and tool call and positioning will be automatic.
