The trial version has all the features of the licensed version, it is just limited to the length of GCode that can be run.

There are a few other limitations in the demo  such as Run From Here wont work, Threading in Turn wont work and a couple of other things but I am almost certain Probe work fine.

I found the procedure to bring up the probe screen but after several attempts I was unable to get the screen to show up properly.  I followed each step.

I've always wondered why I could never get Run From Here to do anything, but never made the connection. :) I guess if I actually finished building a machine and had a reason to get a license, I may have made the connection. The Wiki used to list the features that didn't work in the demo, but I don't recall seeing RFH on that list, and the list was removed a long time ago. Or maybe just moved to somewhere else.
