I am not sure what you are meaning :(
The zero button at the side of the axis DROs will zero the work offset (whichever you are using, G54, G55 etc)
It does not matter whether you are viewing Machine Coords or not, the offset will zero. Machine coords will not change, you can only zero them by homing (not strictly true but for this discussion it is ;) ) So if you are showing machine coords and you zero an axis you will not see the DROs change but when you go back and view the offset DROs (press machine coords  button again) you will see they have changed to zero.

Hood,

The relative has been zeroing automaticaly when I RefAll.  But they are not.

Let me give you an example of my softlimit problem:  This just happened today.

I received a Min Z SoftLimit Warning when I was test cutting a piece.  My SoftMin setting is -7.50, SoftMax is set to 0.0.  I did a GoToZero and the reading for Machine Coords for Z read -6.9135. The tip of the bit was sitting on top of the material.  The material is 0.118" thick.  I have been cutting with this file and the depth of the cut for this file is 0.118".

There is no way I should have received a SoftLimit warning. 

What is going on?

Thanks

Can you attach your code, and I will have a look when I get home.

Hood,

This file gave me a softlimit error the first time I tried to run it.  I ran with out limits.  I ran the file again without a softlimit error.

I do not understand what the problem can be.

I tried your code with your xml and it seemed fine.
When you get the soft limit warning can you move to your work offset x0y0z0 and then  look and see where the machine coords are.
