Z Distance Issues, Soluble Supports

This is not the first time I've had this issue - I thought I've posted it before but can't find it.

 

Can someone tell me how to get my supports to print on the object instead of floating in free air?

 

===============

Edit: This is not the first time I brought this  up. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE COMMENT? I'm over a month into this problem and I would really appreciate some guidance.

Note that I tried this with Z overirdes x/y and the other way around, even with "minimum support distance" set to a small or 0 value, I get the same behavior.

With all distances set to 0 you get support that touches but lose the ability to keep vertical supports off  your part.

Does anyone else have a copy of the CURA software?

 

If you do, could you slice something with dual materials and the contact distance set to 0 and let me know if you see that gap or not?

Can someone tell me WHY you would want your support material to print in mid-air and not be able to change this?
