Can we reduce the amount of travel in Cura?

Hi All,

Seems like Cura 15.04.4 is making the head travel much more than necessary.  Maybe I have a bad setting?

For example, there are four sections with 10 lines.  Instead of printing all ten then moving to the next section, it is  printing two lines of one section, then going to the next section, printing two lines, moving to the next section, printing two lines, then coming back to the original section, printing two more lines, then going around and around again.

Seems like the way it's doing it would take much more time than necessary.

I'm sort of new to Ultimaker, but have not seen this behavior on other desktop 3D printers.  (Ultimaker 2 is still much better than them in all other aspects)

Any thoughts on how to prevent it?

Once we fix this, our printing will be sweet.

Thanks
