You can use it with any software you wish --- you just have to compensate for the Probe's dimensions, either by adjusting an offset or using a macro.

(Just been studying it closely for a couple weeks before jumping in - and I've been asking questions in a lot of forums.) Since I'm about 98% sure I...
