Cura Layer view as height instead of layer number...

I know this sounds rudimentary but it's convenient to see the current Z-Axis height on the printer's display and go look up the layer view this way in Slic3r. Since Cura only seems to show the exact layer number when looking at layer view, I have to calculate the layer number from the current height and layer height setting. Maybe this is already a setting to change but I can't seem to find it. Currently running Cura 2.3.1...

Sorry, Cura can't do that. You could also display the layer nr on the display if you really wanted to.

No, it can't. Perhaps this could be added at some point, though it is tricky to be exact here; there's a buffer on printers, so the line that was just sent to the printer may take a while to actually be printed.

With a bit of post processing magic you could. (add the display message g-code every few lines)
