OK, I see the light. I have figured out how to offer both options. On the New job dialog there is a radio ox called Z strategy. the choices are "equal' and "as entered'

I have fixed the code for circular pocket with the new code and it seems to work, now I need to move that code into the other mill functions.

thanks for the feedback.
