    You can disable ok to move by going to Tool Library and turning off Ok to Move, you may need to increase your pierce delay by doing that.

    will the torch move after it fires with ok to move turned off? I was able to move the torch to a new set point and cut a file. i recorded the x and y coordinates of the set point from the first file that screwed up and went back to that spot and tried to cut the file . all it would is the same ...move to first cut,fire and set there

    Yes the torch will move after piercing with Ok to Move off, it uses the pierce delay.
