It might be an Mcode in the file, try:
Go to Config/ General Config/ Check off "Ignore M Calls While Loading"

yep line 12 for me. I am way more clueless than you I am sure. I used sheetcam to create the code if that helps.

Hey Zealous, I tried that and still no go. Should I restart mach?

No I am getting the error as well:
"Process: Outside Offset. 0. T1: Plasma: 0.06 in Kerf
Are you using Sheetcam ?

Did you import your drawing from soildworks (DXF) into Sheetcam?

Using RFH in plasma with either the G31 TOM routine or the G28.1 routine will ALWAYS cause problems. The G31 and 28.1 are action gcodes that have to be run in order for mach to know where it is and continue AND in RFH it cannot run so mach tends to get stuck and does not know what to do.

In plasma the set next line works with these routines you just HAVE to restart at a new function or a G1 line. You cannot use set next line on a arc. mach will not know where the arc startpoint should be and error out.

That would indeed seem to be the issue as line 12 is the G31 Doing a set next line like Terry suggests seems to work, at least in simulation anyway.

1. put number of line you need, click enter.
2. click SET NEXT LINE
3. click RUN FROM HERE
4. CYCLE START

 I'm having the same problem except I'm using FeatureCAM and it is both starting from the beginning regardless of where I "set next line" and "run from here". It then slowly cycles line by line to the line where I had specified the "Run From Here" to be. Additionally, my toolpath is extremely slow to generate. This particular program is a 3D machining toolpath with approx. 22k lines of code. The post processor is configured to define 1 digit code numbering increments. When initially loading the problem I'm hanging on just the 19th line in a G54 command.

I suspect the "Set Next Line" and my initial loading issues are related. Has anybody made any headway on this?

I can't seem to get my rfh to work as I hoped. Maybe the answer is the 'set next line' as I hadn't pressed that.
It works currently but the preparation  move is always a Z- and 90% of the time this move will crash into the job while the spindle Is off.
So it moves, z- first then in xy till it gets to the desired location then z+ to get ready for cycle start to run from here

Any ideas as I am sick of starting jobs over if I have to do a rfh
