support block with custom support mesh?

hi, doesn't support blocks work with custom support meshes?

 

I know I could just edit my custom mesh to exclude the parts I'm trying to exclude with the support block, but it would be much easier to see it in real time inside cura's viewport.

They don't.

 

"Support blockers" are not subtracted from support structures, but they mark areas of normal meshes that should not be supported. CuraEngine looks at all the polygons of your normal meshes and decides if they need support or not. If an area overlaps with a "Support blocker" (internally named "anti_overhang_mesh"), the overhang/orientation of that area is ignored and support is not created.
