You can set the direction of skin and infill lines. By default, the skin lines are at +45 and -45 degrees but if you change the top/bottom line directions to [0] then all the skin lines will be printed at 0 degrees. Similar for infill. Hope this helps.

Ah, I just realised that you probably want all the lines printed in the same direction (i.e. bottom to top) but even when setting the directions as I mention above, alternate lines are printed in opposite directions (i.e. first line bottom to top, 2nd line top to bottom, etc.)

I believe outer shells are always CCW and inner shells (holes) are CW.  I don't think it's possible to change this.
