How do I make Octoprint run M25 on pause exclusively?

What is the problem?
I just recently discovered the nozzle park feature in Marlin and want to start using it; but I have no clue how to make Octoprint run M25 exclusively. Whenever I try to pause it during prints, it just pauses where it's at of the print instead of running M25. How can I have Octoprint run M25 instead of running whatever Gcode that makes the printer stop where it's at

What did you already try to solve it?
I added M25 in the pause gcode script in Octoprint and it does show up the action prompt to resume the print, I hit continue but it never starts back up (this behavior happens only when im printing something, I just run M25 with no job sent from Octoprint, the action prompts run just fine). In fact, I notice that Octoprint still says "Pausing" as it runs the command through the Gcode script; so it seems I may not be able to run the command through that way.

Hello Nova!

M25 is for pausing a SD card print:

For pausing a print, you can use a script like in the examples:

PS: To resume a with M25 paused SD card print, use M24

Ah ok! So I did just find that I can trigger a nozzle park with G27 (which just moves it into the park position I specified in the firmware), so theretriclly, instea of using G1 X0 Y0 that's in the pause script, I use G27?

So, if I understand you correct, you want to include a certain gcode command into your gcode file, so that the print heat moves to a certain point at a certain moment during the print.
May I ask for what purpose?

I do things like this when I'm embedding electronics into a part, like the RFID bottlecap project, for instance.

Oh I got it! I added the pause script and instead of a G1 command, I used G27 instead. Then I used the Resume script that was listed in the documentation. Thanks guys
