Just keep in mind that the Set Next Line doesn't load any modal functions that were supposed to be executed prior to the selected line. I got to be very careful with this.

Oh, it's also smart to hit Stop before doing SetNextLine.  If you do it mid-program, without doing a Stop, Mach3 will still sometimes try to do some goofy prep move, which almost invariably involves jamming your tool at full speed into the side of a clamp or vise.  (I wonder how it always knows where they are??).
