Are you talking in verify or the "edit nc operation" button? If you are talking the editor, it is the spindle looking button with the pencil thru it in you ops. manager.

no what i am talking about is in wireframe. it happens everytime you finish an opperation and leaves gray lines on the screen that represent your tool center
your rapid moves in red. you used to be able to step through it with the keyboard.:)

In your ops. manager, select the button that looks like a tool in the spindle(green in color) and has a pencil on it. This will allow you to step thru your toolpath using your keyboard.

The other thing you can do to step by step it is to click on the status button in the verification screen(looks like an old tape...just to the right of the floppy icon).
That gives you the option to stop it move by move, or after each rapid move, or tool change, etc.
