Pausing the program?

Is it possible to pause the program, or stopping it mid way through a carve, and restart the carve at the same spot at a later time? Like I have to stop it and go to work. Then come back tomorrow and finish the carve.

Thank you.

you could pause the cnc, turn off the router, then turn on the router and resume when you return.
during this time the steppers will hold their position and use power but it’s the simplest option.

the other option involves downloading the gcode, editing the file to remove the completed portion, and then uploading it back into easel and running that as a completely different carve job when you return from work… And I made that sound much simpler than it really is as editing gcode isn’t fit for most Easel users…

Thank you. Way over my head to do programing.
