Default Help Needed - Measure Tool Stopped Working

This is a first time error. I have been using my machine since the first of the year with no issues.

I ran the first part of my file just fine. Flipped my material to start the file for the back. Measured to the top of my material (maybe I should have measured to the spoil board?) Ran the file and my bit was cutting air.

I tried to restart and now the "measure tool" option will no longer work.

This is also the first time I have tried flipping a part to run a file for the back of material.

Here is what WIN CNC says when I try.

You typically Zzero to the top of the block on the first side & to the bed/bottom of the block on the 2nd side.

If you Zzero to the top of the block on the 2nd side and you are cutting air, this is a good sign that your Z reference is to the bottom of the block.

Thanks! I think I have it figured out now.

That's what I get for working overnight after I finished work
