I was trying to use my printing system as a laser engraver using the Inkscape Laser Tool Plug-In. This program outputs a gcode with G01 and G02/G03 commands. Currently, I am using a Duet Wifi so I installed the DuetWiFiFirmware-1.17e which includes the G02/G03 commands recognition.However, the machine was not responding as I was expecting. Then I erased the Duet Wifi and installed everything again, without success.So I tried the following code the find the problem. For now, I just used a pencil to plot the movement.
G90G21G01 X10 Y25G02 X10 Y25 I20 J0 F125
In my case the X -axis is mirrored which should not matter in my opinion.
And when trying:G01 X10 Y25G03 X10 Y25 I20 J0 F125
It gave the response shown in the blue dotted line.
As I understand the G02/G03 commands, the machine should start its circular motion directly at X10 Y25 instead of moving to the Y25+ radius first.Is there a way this problem can be solved?

Please can you check that image link because it doesn't work for me.

Is it visible now?
Yes, it's visible now. I'll try that out tomorrow.
