Re: Undo single toolpath preview

Yes, before you leave the Preview Toolpaths menu click on the Undo Last button, that will remove the VCarve toolpath, then you can Close the Preview menu make the changes and return to the Preview Toolpath menu and run just the VCarve toolpath.

There's a Capture box, the dot is the record button or you can use Window Key-Alt-R
