I noticed that when I use the option start from here it won't let me choose the position the machine will start, it automatically choose the coords of the line before I want to start...

Yes, that is normal on both Mill and Turn, just start from the next line and it will run from the one you want :)

What I was trying to say is that it I can't choose coords and it still moves the X 1st and Z 2nd...

thanks for your help anyway

Yes X should move first but only  to the value you type in as the Rapid Dia in the prep move box.
If your X is at 20mm and you type 40 for the rapid dia it will go to 40, z will move then X will go back into the dimension the line of code has. Similarly if you were initially at 100 dia and you put a 40 in the rapid dia it would move X to 40 then z would move.

Hood thanks for helping.

I understand what you are tring to say but as I told you in the prep move box I can't type anything, only the safe Z which is useless in lathe.

You are telling me to put a different value in X so the Z moves 1st, but I can't!! The boxes are greyed out and I can't input any different value

Am I missing something??

Sounds like you are using a mill profile rather than a turn profile. Have a look at Ports and Pins and see if the last tab says Turn Options or Mill Options.
