    1998 Haas vf3 Renishaw Probe and TS setup help.

    I have a late model 1998 haas vf3. I installed a MP8 probe and MI12 interface and a wired TS27r. I was given the easy set macro list 40120737.0C with VQC added. I do not have VQC graphic display as I believe my machine software is too old. Everything is working mostly. However the probe sets work offset G54 in the negative on the DRO then its balanced out on the offsets page. It works but doesn't say "0" on DRO readout when set. not sure if thats normal or a big problem.
    also I would like a quick code call for outside features xyz. I have a call for inside pocket that works good and the calibration for outside worked but no p9023 a... easy call for it on my list. I assume I could link single feature calls together wit Z moves in between to accomplish this all together ?

    Next issue. is The TS works only in single set manual option. I calibrated it For Z touch off but I can not run the radius calibration with out errors. (505 value stack error) anytime I edit any # in a macro (as pre the manual says to do) I get that error. if I run it as is the machine want to move all the way to the opposite side of X on the table away from the setter. then it starts to work but then of course "probe open" error.

    I feel like I'm missing something super simple here Like I have the wrong macro list or I'm missing something on my machine (programs from haas) or a setting or something. or #1 I'ma idiot. I have had very little help and I'm totally learning as I go. So if anyone wants to help me out that would be great I'll donate for your time
