I see! You are going to need to change the screen set to make this happen... If you open up screen designer and change the code to this you will get what you are looking for.

DoButton( 24 ) ' ref X
DoButton( 23 ) ' refY
DoButton( 22 ) ' refZ
DoButton( 25 ) ' ref4

Code"G53 G00 X.2 Y.3  Z-.1"

This will tell every axis to move from the home position.

I'm trying to do something similar and I got the above code to work.   I advance all three axis 0.100 off the home switches by Code"G53 G00 X0.100 Y0.100 Z-0.100".  Now I would like the Machine DRO's to be zeroed.  They are all at 0.1000.  I seem to be able to get them to temporarily zero but then they go back to 0.1000.  Any suggestions?
