Just getting into using the thread tool and have a few observations/questions.

When doing an internal thread right through an object (say, a lathe toolpost, etc), it omits the last thread or two as if it's into a blind hole. Can this be corrected?

Can the default settings be changed? It seems silly that left-hand threads are the default.

That's a known defect that the developers haven't seen fit to correct.

It seems silly that left-hand threads are the default.

That has been corrected in v16.1. RH is now the default but LH is available.
