Carbide Create Pro using more then one cutter

Just received my machine. Using carbide create pro. If I have 2 separate tool paths with two different bits does the machine stop and retract so I can install the second bit?
Also, I assume I will have to zero the Z axis again after tool change? Will I have to zero the x and y at the bit change or does the machine remember this info when I touch probe for Z after the bit change?

It is best to create separate G-code files for each bit. Carbide Create has a Toolpath Group to make this easier with complex tool paths (a group per bit).

You are correct that you will need to zero the Z axis again but not the X and Y axis. The controller has separate buttons to probe XYZ and only Z.
