Incremental mode was created by grijalvap
I'm working with a new plasma project  and the post procesor output the G code in incremental mode, wich have some adventages for the actual user, however when the file is loaded in QTplasmaC it is displayed properly, but when you move the torch to a diferent position (not the home) 
you can start the cutting process whic is ok, but the torch is not following the original drawing, is any way to make the drawing move to the begin point when in incrementalmode?

Does setting the G5x offsets by clicking X0Y0 prior to CYCLE START do what you would like.

I was thinking in any automatic way to set the origin to the current point if incremental mode is set in the pre-amble so the drawing is maybe reloaded to the new x0y0 position.

I don't know of a way to do it automatically at the moment. Leave it with me and I will see if I can come up with something.

Search for "gcode ripper" it is a small python script to manipulate existing gcode.

If it does not have to be 'G91' then you could easily create a custom Mcode with this in it:
G10 L20 P0 X0Y0Z0

This will set the current axis positions to zero (not sure if you need to zero the Z axis on a plasma).
