Retraction for the same layer

Posted · Retraction for the same layer

I am filling in a plain rectangle to make a flat surface

Instead of starting in one corner and filling in in one go to the opposite corner Cura leaves a triangle behind, fills in to the far end then comes back to fill in the triangle.

If it has to do that - is it possible to retract, lift then come back to finish the triangle?

I always get a string across an otherwise perfect surface.

Am I missing a trick?

NB, there is no layer change - it retracts between layers OK. This is all on one layer.

If there is a hole in the surface I get many more strings all on the same layer.

If I write text I get retraction and no strings between letters all for the same layer number.

    This behaviour has been fixed and I thought that 2.7 incorporated the changes, could you please post a link to the gcode?
