Pause after Skirt?

Is there a way to make a print pause after the skirt is printed? It's a perfect guide for applying glue for adhesion without wasting any or missing sections.

I don't know a way to pause the printer after the skirt, you can only manually edit the gcode file. Be aware that a pause after the skirt is counterproductive. You want to prime the nozzle just before it starts printing, so a pause in between is not so good.

 

But why so complicated, I apply a few stripes of glue on the glass, then distribute it with a wet tissue to get a thin layer. I distribute it over the whole area of the glass and renew the glue layer after 20-30 prints. 

 

A glue stick is cheap so don't waste your time with such hacks, it is not worth in my opinion.
