Posted · Print start point

Hi folks I've been printing now for approx 8years+ creating my own drawings in Sketchup and fusion 360, ive updated Cura over the years as and when needed, however i've encountered a problem. I have damaged 2 nozzle my recent software update to 4.2.1 has changed the travel position upon starting the print.

On the earlier version of cura 15.04.3 the nozzle was raised slightly above the print bed (start point lower left corner) it then lowered and travelled diagonally to centre of bed starting the print process. The problem i have now is that the print  head is virtually at print bed height then travels approx 50-60mm along x axis then travels straight up to centre, it comes into contact with my bulldog clip front left and scrapes the bed glass slightly as the glass is slightly smaller than print bed, however this is not the issue.

Is there anyway i can modify the start up Gcode to have it perform like the earlier version mentioned, ie travelling diagonally from start after lowering as it travels.

Sorry for sounding long winded, i prefer not to go back to earlier version.

The machine i'm using is a Prusa i3, thanks in advance.
