Default Wincnc newb question

I am getting the hang of my new camaster but I do have a question about wincnc. I run mainly short jobs then remove parts, replace them with new parts the rerun the same job. On my old mach3 machine rerunning the same job was one click of the mouse. With wincnc I click on restart then a window pops up and I select the most recent file then enter line number 1 in the start at line number dialog box then hit enter, then enter again. Is there a one click option or command that I can use or is there a macro I can create to do this? Any advice appreciated, thanks.
Gene

I most often use TAB and then hit Enter and probably Enter once again.

I hit the <ENTER> key.
Double click the file.
Hit <ENTER> again.

If you have the WinCNC pendant you can simply press the "Repeat" button

Gene, Gary can get you setup with both the device and the programming...he's a good resource to work with for this kind of thing because it's not "plug and play".

Gene, in WINCNC you can click on "Options" then check "Auto Repeat". This will, after the job has been cut, place the same program into the cue, so all you nees to do is hit enter... We also run our programs over and over again. I have also wired a pushbutton onto my older CAMaster to di the same thing as the enter button, to make it easier for the operator
