Personally, I would manually probe all the tool holders for a job before starting, set them up in the tool table. and run the job I wouldn't want to mess with probing at each tool change. That way if you are running a job that uses 6 tools and you need to run it 10 times, you are only probing 6 times instead of 60. (Just my opinion and personal preference.)

There are lots of ways to work. I find that I do most of my milling in G54 and tool zero just setting the axis (not tool) offsets. But then I do a lot of work just cranking the MPG or using MDI (often in polar coordinates)

It very much depends on the work you are doing, and I am generally making it up as I go along :-)

Removed due to inaccuracies in my knowledge of tool offsets
