ABB MoveAbsJ joints generated instead of Cartesian MoveJ

When "Generating robot program" for an ABB robot, MoveAbsJ moves are being downloaded instead of a Cartesian MoveJ, even when "keep cartesian position" is selected.

Joint movements are generated as MoveAbsJ by default with all the ABB post processors. 

You can change this behavior by setting the variable MOVEJ_AS_MOVEABSJ to False in the post processor:

OK great, thank you Albert.
One more question regarding ABB downloads,
Why is ConfJ \On; ConfL \Off; downloaded at the top of the PROC? Is there a way to disable this? I can't see it in the Post Processor.
I have "Resect joint turns for linear movements" selected in the motion settings.
