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.
