Click in the code window and scroll down using the arrow keys on the keyboard, when you reach the line you want to start from choose the Run From Here button, it will run through the code and stop at the line you have chosen, clcik start and you should get a prep move box, OK that and the tool will move to that position once there press Start again and you will be on your way.

Oh meant to say, if you know the line you want to run from you can type that into the line DRO and then press Run From Here.

Are you just running the Demo version? If so that is why, Run From Here is only in the licenced version.
