Noticed this with 2018 and now also on 2019 version. Have configured when creating a new WCS
also T and C plane follows, just like I want it. Continuing from that and creating a new machine group
it changes the T and C plane to TOP plane, why? For me when importing operations I want it to stay 
on the planes I already created once before otherwise I manually have to change the parameters
on all imported operation. 

This was never an issue on X9 for example. Perhaps not a big deal if you work on a larger project but
atleast  when creating 50+ WCS everyday its alot of modding. Any idea why mastercam 
reverts back to TOP plane when starting a new machine group?

T/C planes jump all over for me in lathe.  Have ever since going to 2017.  I have made a habit of looking over to check my planes before creating a new toolpath.  EVERY SINGLE TIME.  It even spills over to mill, I check planes constantly.
