how do you control the direction of a cut or cut segment in SheetCAM? I use SheetCAM TNG, if that makes a difference

I know I can choose a direction in BobCAD, but SheetCAM seems to ignore it

also, I think I had a part once where it skipped around and cut various segments of the same cut in different directions...I went back and looked at it in BobCAD, and it had arrows pointing accordingly, so I figured that's why SheetCAM didn't cut it all in one go...but now, it wont do that again

While I do have TNG, I am still using the older version right now. Just haven't made the full jump yet.

Changing direction on a profile is done by switching climb cut on or off.

Single lines are done by moving the start points.
