Hi Andrea,

 

your question is a bit unclear, perhaps this is the reason noone reacts.

If I understood you right, you are missing the tool, where one can see how the object will be printed each layer, right?

At my Cura 4.0, this feature is placed in preview mode, middle of BOTTOM line, direct under the buildplate.

I hope I understood your question right and could help.

 

Regards

Yes the problem is that I can't see the orizontal bar. I see only the vertical one that permit to change layer, BUT NOT the orizontal one that permit to check how is realized the layer with the movment of the hotend. This feature should be activated somewhere? I see it in all youtube videos. My system is Windows 10.

Practically I don't see the bar in red cirlce below and I can't select nothing a part "Line type" in the right of below picture.

That's because your layerview is in compatibility mode. This happens because of two reasons; You either selected this in preferences or your graphics card doesn't support opengl 4.1. 

 

Note that in the first screenshot, the Sidebar GUI plugin is used to rearrange the UI. This made the vertical slider move to the left of the settings.

I have 2 Laptops:

first: whit Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 and ok ... he should not support Open GL 4.1 but only 4.0 even if the last driver espose some API Open GL 4.1

second with Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600.... this should support Open GL 4.1 (it should support 4.3)  but in any case I have the same "issue".

The gpu in the first laptop does not support the required functionality for the normal layerview, so it falls back to the compatibility mode.

 

The gpu in the second laptop should support the required functionality. There are two possibilities why it does not work:

* You may have changed the preference on the General pane of the preference to force the compatibility mode

* The driver you have installed on the laptop may disable OpenGL 4.1
