Saving current Z position into the tool length table.

So the way tool offsets work in other controls is you call the tool you need.
Then jog the tool to the top of gauge block/part top/etc and hit the button "Write offset"
that saves the current machine Z position into the current Tool offset number.

Is there something like this in uccnc? Because I am missing it and currently have to remember the values and enter them manually.

Also, do UCCNC input fields at least allow copy/paste functionality?

A macro can be written to automatically set the tool length. Enable the On-screen keyboard plugin: with that you can copy/paste values.
