I'm trying to view the Toolpath Ordering, but when I click the icon, I get the first shape to be cut labeled as number 1 and nothing else. Clicking the green or blue arrows does nothing and I can't step through the job. Anybody know what's going on?

Actioncheese,
 Your parts are most likely grouped together. If items are grouped then it treats it as one piece. If you want to see how its going to cut them individually you will need to ungroup everything. 

Best Regards,
Aaron

I had a look and they are ungrouped, so I grouped and ungrouped everything and it didn't fix the issue.

I just did a test where I drew three objects and gave them a routing offset. The Toolpath Ordering worked correctly so I drew a large box around the shapes and that broke the ordering again. So the ordering looks to work for cutting parts from a sheet, but not if I want to cut an enclosed panel with a pattern cut from the inside.

According to the image you've posted.  It looks like all of the shapes were tool pathed together (why they look red in the image) making it all one big part with an outside male tool path, and a bunch of inner female paths.  Delete all the tool paths, select all of the inner paths only, generate those paths as seperate female paths, then do the outer male one.
