I have som questions I hope to get clarified on how-to.

Home all axis
move to toolheight probe, X and Y are clear to me but Z confuses me so I would like to get help on how-to set all correct.

```[TOOLSENSOR]
# Absolute coordinates of the toolsetter pad
X = 10 >>>>>> 419.5
Y = 10 >>>>>> 95
# Absolute Z start search coordinates
Z = 60 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> This is confusing
# Maximum search distance and direction (sign)
MAXPROBE = -60 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Want to start from Z home
# Speed of movements during working in Probe Screen
RAPID_SPEED = 600
TS_DIAMETER = 12.7
# The speed of the reverse rotation of the spindle when measuring the tool diameter
REV_ROTATION_SPEED = 300```

Left arrow in picture I get a negative value of -112.0667 and it is here the confusion starts.
I want to get my MP10 probe to be my master tool T1
Tool table is empty

How do I get all correct to the set correct TS height?
Is it the dimension from table to probe top that is the TS Height? That is measured to be -93.5

ts height is from the coordinate system
the G10 Z Value

hi im on IRC if it helps live

the Hook is on REMAP make that off first
then switch to absolute in the DRO
you will see the same number in Z as it showes

I shoudt say that i run in lots of trouble by Probescreen so i made a pyvcp and 5 Buttons
and do touchoff by Button and mdi command

depending on coordinate system loaded and need to be loaded for probescreen it can crach the whole mashine

Therfor the tool sensor is on G30 position

Sorry I have no IRC

Also to clarify my machine X/Y home is in upper left corner so my Y goes negative.
This is the way the machine was built and I will not change as it needs a lot of work.
All axis move correctly with my keyboard.

[TOOLSENSOR]
# Absolute coordinates of the toolsetter pad
X = 419.5
Y = -95
# Absolute Z start search coordinates
Z = 0
# Maximum search distance and direction (sign)
MAXPROBE = -200
# Speed of movements during working in Probe Screen
RAPID_SPEED = 600
TS_DIAMETER = 12.7
# The speed of the reverse rotation of the spindle when measuring the tool diameter
REV_ROTATION_SPEED = 300

[CHANGE_POSITION]
# Abs coordinates tool change point
X = 10
Y = -240
Z = 0

With above settings I can run:
All home
Press TS and axid move to tool setter.

Can not command M6 T1 or T2 = nothing happens
But I can run M61 and axis move to TS posiotion

Soft limits on Y is 90 to -240

Any ideas what can be wrong?

Did you close the tool-prepare , tool-prepared chain?

`net tool-prep-loop         iocontrol.0.tool-prepare      <=   iocontrol.0.tool-prepared`

in postgui-hal

Is it this line you mean Norbert?

Here my config files, maybe I have missed something so M6 Tx does not work.
