S5 Malfunctions after "pause at height", Prints Air

I have attempted several different builds that require a "pause at height/layer" for me to insert a part, then continue printing. After any pause at height operation, my S5 resumes by extruding a small blob of plastic in a location seemingly unrelated to the print. It then resumes printing, but just moves the head, with no extrusion. It is not a clogged nozzle. I've updated the firmware and I'm using Cura version 3.4.1

 

Anyone else having an issue, and more importantly, is there a solution? I can't monitor the printer constantly to determine when to pause it manually. I need this feature to work.

    Here's a curious development. I just let a malfunctioning print run to see what would happen, and after a few minutes it became clear that after the pause the feeder began running IN REVERSE! My filament is now halfway up the bowden tube!

    The PauseAtHeight Script is fixed for the next Cura version so it also works with the Ultimaker 3 and S5 printers.

     

    Great! Maybe I'll try the beta.

    I'm using Cura 3.5.1 with an Anycubic i3 Mega printer and I have a similar problem. The extruder just "prints in the air" after a break. No filament is feed through the extruder after the pause.

    Actually I wanted to insert a pause at layer 4 to insert a layer of tulle/net to print "dragon scales" as in https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2755451

    The settings are as follows…
