    Hi, I am trying to figure out how to have the z axis lift when travelling using the OB cam software. When using Easel, it works perfectly. If I created a job in cam and transfer it to OB control, the pen or bit will drag across the work surface when moving from one job to another. I am creating the job by selecting all in CAM and creating a single process but with multiple items (15 - letters and drawing). When moving fro letter to letter it will not lift. It messes up the plot or cnc job in doing this. Is there anyway to have it automatically and by default lift when travelling without having to create 15 different processes?
