Hello,
Although I use mach3 for some time, I feel this question is firmly in the newbie category.

When I step through code for debugging, not connected to the machine, how can the current (calculated) XYZ position be shown?
The coordinations always stay 0, but the toolpath is correctly shown.

simple example:
line1:   G00  X0 Y0 Z0
line2:   G00  X10 Y10 Z0

When I am on line 2, I would like the interface/coordinates to show 10,10,0

this would be helpful with code containing variables
I am sure I'm overlooking an obvious setting

best regards
