I think I have dyslexia, it is "swap axis" maybe?
I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather, not like the passengers in the car! :-)

Yes I do have a lathe, but it is a separate machine.  If I were you I would have 2 completely separate profiles, one Machturn for the lathe and the other Machmill.  The axis definitions would be different but you'll have to live with that as the rest of the world uses Z on the vertical axis for milling, including AFAIK CAM progrems to generate milling code.
