    You can't change all the highlighted lines from the definition files.


    The absolute extrusion lines should change to relative extrusion lines if you change the "Relative Extrusion" setting in the "Special Modes" category.


    The M104 and M109 lines that appear before the start gcode will not be inserted there if you include them in your start gcode as follows:

    M104 T{initial_extruder_nr} S{material_print_temperature_layer_0,initial_extruder_nr}

    M109 T{initial_extruder_nr} S{material_print_temperature_layer_0,initial_extruder_nr}

    Cura looks for the string "material_print_temperature" in your start gcode. If it is not there, it will prepend its own heatup sequence.


    You can also use a post processing script (eg search and replace) to edit the output before it is saved/exported.
