G17 G18 was created by rider-83
I have in my .INI file for my start up code G18,
However, gmoccapy still displays G17
If I have G18 in my cnc code, gmoccapy still displays G17

If I type G18 in MDI, then gmoccapy displays G18, but then instantly reverts back to G17 when the cnc program begins, however the machine behaves correctly as it should do under G18.
It would appear it behaves correctly, but doesn't display the correct model G-Plane currently active.
Am I doing something wrong?

This is caused by two things:

1) M2 reverts to G17
2) The status display shows the interpreter state, and that has typically interpreted the whole G-code file and queued all the moves with a few milliseconds of pressing "start"

If you put an M66 E0 L0 command before the M2 you will probably see slightly different behaviour (M66 stops the interpreter lookahead)
