Tools in 2020 CAM Turning start at X0Z0

I had created toolpaths in Solidworks CAM 2019 for a lathe part.  Toolpaths looked great with the turning tools starting far away from the part in X and Z like normal.


Fast forward to where I upgraded to Solidworks CAM 2020, and I load my lathe part with its toolpaths.  When/If I regenerate my toolpaths, now the turning tools start (and end) at X0 Z0.


I have even tried deleting all of the 2019 CAM toolpaths and starting from scratch in 2020 CAM.  No change.  The toolpaths still show the turning tools as starting and ending at X0 Z0.


I have spent a couple of hours trying to find out where the glitch is located.  Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?




P.S.  Both the 2019 Solidworks and the 2020 Solidworks are student editions.
