Passing MDI Commands through gcode mid program?

Hello all,

Is it possible to incorporate MDI commands from within a gcode program? For example: move the tool to a safe location above the workpiece then $H rehome the machine to update the machine coordinate location (in the event of lost steps), they continue the program without human interruption?
Very curious! Thanks

I’m away from the machine right now but had a thought for a repeat job I’m doing.

We have had a few discussions about this and to the best of my knowledge (and based on last time I tried this, which was many releases ago), CM does not allow for anything else than G-code commands to be parsed/executed, so GRBL $ commands were ignored.
