getting g code into AXIS

Not clear on how to save g code program so it can be run by AXIS. I have been unable to find detailed information on how to do this. All attempts to open a saved g code result in a notice that the g code cannot be opened. Thanks
How are you saving the file. I you save as somefile.txt or .ngc -it should be ok.
At least the active G code is similar, after ending with M2 or M30, but reset to a state as described in the docs.
Enclosing the Code with %, F, Plane, M3, Offset and maybe more is keeping its programmed values.
I am not shure if it is still a problem, when using % in the main program and also in a called subroutine.
Enclosed with % %
