Plasma Torch Finish Position

I have been looking endlessly for the tab that controls where the plasma torch finishes at the end of the cutting. My old table the torch would start at the bottom left and finish in the exact same spot...I know where to change the starting orientation but not the final point of completion at the end of the cut. Thanks for any input as this question got me stumped. Currently the torch stops and hovers above final cut.

Thank you to those that have given me direction. Sheetcam is an awesome program.

After changing those settings (parking position tab) the torch completes the cutting and returns to the start position... then darts back to final cut position still.

I am starting to think it could be mach 3 setting I am missing?

I run an 5x10 LDR table

It might be something in your post processor. Does the gcode have a move after the parking move? Which post are you using. Check the onfinish section and see if there is an extra move line in there.
