trigger for G99 G98 with hole making

what triggers G99 G98 when using hole making?  With the Drill operations you set the Rtrcto to manual or auto.  But I can't seem to find a setting in the hole making stuff.

in drill, old drill operation - you can set it in cycle setting -rtrct to - auto, manual, etc.

and it outputs G98/99.

But in case of G99 (manual) tools stay in clearence plane - you have to output Z retract motion.


In holemaking it is automatic.

When you set transition/rapid - non cutting moves - direct between features - G99

if you set it to clearence plane - G98


It works for me this way.
