The error message is popping up when I first open v-vectric.
The error message reads:
Expected 'begin SECTION' or 'end SECTION' to terminate current section

As long as the post-processor is using gcode it should not matter which one I use specific to the machine or not as long as it populates a code that works with the sender and machine.
Per your question, I used a different.pp simply to test things out and see if my entry was the problem. The entry worked just fine in the previously mentioned Gcode.pp but i would like it to work with the Shapeoko.pp.
When I save a program with multiple tools I am simply trying to add the ability to auto-populate the M6 prompt via the post-processor so my G code sender will automatically prompt for a tool a change. I would like to do this with the Shapeoko mm post-processor but I cannot get it to work.
"100%" Pretty sure the modern world would not be what it is today if people only did things they were 100% with.
POST_NAME = "Shapeoko (mm) (*.gcode)"

Not sure what you mean by adding it into other post processors. Aren't you adding it into the correct one for your machine? Why do it on post processors that aren't correct for your machine.
If you're not 100% sure what you're doing then you're best to leave it alone as you can cause all sorts of problems if you get it wrong.
