Cura 2.7 no retraction - tool change code?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had an issue with there being no retraction in Cura 2.7 when printing even though retraction is on? I'm getting great results otherwise but not having the filament retract is definitely going to fudge up the print.

Also I wanted to know if Cura 2.7 has a gcode edit section like Simplify3D does where I can add a tool change script for a single nozzle dual extruder.
