When a program is loaded into CM, it tells you the size of it. Since CM knows how big the cutting area of the current program is, it would be useful if on the ‘Rapid’ jog screen there was a button to jog to the center (X,Y) of the current program. I would use this as an easy way to position the tool for Z probing.
If CM wants to get into the business of inspecting the G-code, I think it would also be helpful to warn if the current zero and cutting envelope will exceed the the machine boundaries. For instance, right now the machine will ram itself into an axis limit and keep losing steps if commanded to by the G-code.
