Brim for support ?

Is there any way to generate a brim for support lines ?  When you get very low support percentage the individual lines tend to lift and it would be nice if there was a way to increase the adhesion to the build plate.

    CRAP !!!!  I spent forever (well maybe an hour) searching for that option but just couldn't find it!

    I did look in the settings visibility too, honest 😞

     

    Thank you VERY much. I am making an eye doctor appointment on Monday !

    In the past, the setting search box was not too helpful when searching for a word that wasn't the first and I got into the habit of not using the search function. Mind you, in this case I would likely have searched for 'support' and I should have found it.

    Senility is setting in 😞

     

    Enabled the option and voila ... it's implemented rather odd in that it doesn't do a brim around the individual support lines but the net outcome of better adhesion is the same.

    Jens, I was trying to understand if there is a way to create a brim around the support as you mention, and it does work. The problem is that you have to make sure that "Brim only on  Outside" is NOT checked.
