Hi Terry,
Go to the Config tab, ports and pins, then Mill options.
Check the box that says Homed true when no home switches. This way when you click the ref all button, the machine will not move but home right where it is.

We never have the time or money to do it right the first time, but we somehow manage to do it twice and then spend the money to get it right.
