Does anyone know how to avoid the lines that happen on non printable areas (while the extruder head is traveling from one side of the print tho the other)?

This lines even show up in Cura and what seems to be happening is that after the print is high enough when the extruder travels it air prints then accumulating a blob of material in the nozzle when it gets to the other part of the print it leaves that material creating blobs in the print.

Here are my retraction settings:

I've noticed that those lines seem to be a Cura thing so I'm guessing there's probably a way to turn them off. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    Enable combing. When this is enabled, the head will travel over the the print to the next point. with it off it will just go straight from one point to the next.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
