Jogging is ok?

if so try some simple GCodes via MDI Input line

Zero your x axis

G1X100F200 will drive x axis to 100 (check the distance)
G1X0F200 will return to Zero (check as it is on the original startpoint)

repeat a couple of times.
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.
