2010 screenset...when i orbit in the view(toolpath) window while cutting the machine stops...

Is this a normal thing that mach does?
I was cutting a part and noticed the retract wasn't right so i went to orbit in the window to see what it looked like..as soon as i orbit the machine stops and goes into reset.

Mach3's toolpath display uses a lot of PC resources, and the larger toolpath in the 2010 Screenset makes it even worse.
It's generally recommended to NEVER move the toolpath display while the machine is running.
