It may be possible for you to instead utilise the M110/M10 commands instead.  It may not be working in the present download but should be soon in the development version.

Thanks! This would be another topic but I would need some with XY offsets again. I have used G54 and G55 for torch and Scribe. Now Homing swiches are installed and therefore this offseting is not working anymore. What would be the procedure for setting offset parameters for G52?

Simply G52X*Y*  where * are the values you wish to offset the axis. G52 X0Y0 will set them back.

It was easier than I expected - works fine, thanks a lot!

I have now updated Mach. How can I use M110/M10 commands to deactivate output 2 (THC off) instead of M15, to prevent axis stopping during the process?

Thank you in advance!

What do you use OutPut2 for?

It swiches off automatic arc height control before leadout or in case it is better to cut in manual THC mode.
So you're getting dive at kerf crossing and/or slow down at leadout.

You should really use anti-dive but if you prefer to switch off THC then you can't do it with ANY macro without Mach stopping. It's not so much that a macro takes time to do what it does, it's because Mach's CV planner doesn't blend movement accross a macro call and therefore you get an exact stop between the two moves.

Do a search for the E1P0/E1P1 command family which were created for laser users but may help you.
