Setting the work offset
You can enter a new position value in the actual value display for individual axes when a
settable work offset is active.
The difference between the position value in the machine coordinate system MCS and the
new position value in the workpiece coordinate system WCS is saved permanently in the
currently active work offset (e.g. G54).
The control is in the workpiece coordinate system.
The actual value is set in the reset state.

Press the "Set WO" softkey.
Enter the new position value for X, Y or Z directly in the actual value
display (you can toggle between the axes with the cursor keys) and
press the "Input" key to confirm the entries.
