Probe command, can I raise bit on same line?

In experimenting w/ the probe, I use Carbide Motion’s MDI screen (what does MDI stand for) to send:

G38.2 Z-13 F100

And it works great.

Is it possible to add anything to that command (or another command tacked-on after a semicolon or anything) to lift the bit a little so I can remove the probe? If I lift the bit a known distance, I can just factor that into whatever I punch into my Z-axis value, and then I won’t have to jog the Z up so I can get my plate out w/o scratching it up.

I am going to guess

MDI Manual Data Input

I think you can enter multiple commands on a line and they’ll get processed in sequence, but at work, so can’t check.
