In the “Control Topics” tree on the left, go to “NC Output” and enable the sequence numbers by putting a check in the box next to “Output Sequence Numbers” and disable it by removing the check.
(Note: This is where you can choose what number the sequence start on, and the increment it goes by)
Click on the disk to save your settings, then click on the green check when finished.
(Note: Clicking on the green check will prompt you to save these new settings)
Save your settings in the “Machine Definition Manager”, and click on the green check.
