    Default DMG DMC103V 840D Z axis work offset is locked how to unlock?

    Im trying to set the work offset on this machine. The DMC implementation of the WCS on this control is really different than whats in the Siemens manual and also very different from my DMG DMC manual that came with the machine, almost looks like it for a different machine or control.

    In machine screen, I can go to scratch then press "Z0 base", which I assume is G53 the settable offset. I was able to reset x and y to zero at the work offset but not z.

    Is there some trick not described in regular manuals that you need to do on a DMG DMC siemens machine to set the Z offset? I assume that if I set one tool to the work offset position, they will all be set correctly as they are all referenced to the height of the laser measurement system at their tip.
