Not sure if you found out how to do this, but if not, can you just remove the end gcode that turns them off.  M104 turns off the hotend and M140 turns off the bed.

Thank you very much, Jamok! Unfortunately Cura 4.5 seems to have two "End Gcode sections" the first is accessible (there i deleted all M140 commands, the second "End Gcode section"is hidden and contains the the Heatbed switch off command. Just compare any gcode: this will validate my claim. Maybe one of the hundrets of settings may allow configurating the hidden section or otherwise i have to edit each gcode file to delete  the M140 S0 or i have to accept the time delay of reheating the heatbed for next print 😞

That is rough.  I did not even think to compare the gcode that is generated.  Could you add the temps you want by editing the gcode after it is created?

Yes just compare the end gcode in cura with end gcode in file...

 

Yes i can add and delete in gcode file everything i want, but as cura as so many cool features i just cant believe that this is the productive way 😉

One of the productive cool features in Cura is the postprocessing plugin. Extensions -> Post processing -> Modify G-Code. Especially the Search and Replace script is a very powerful tool; you can eg replace M140 S0 with M140 S50 if you wanted.

Not sure if it matters but I did the search part with the last 2 lines just in case there is an "M104 S0" that needs to be included for other reasons.

 "M82 ;absolute extrusion mode
M104 S0" is what I searched for.  Each sliced file I looked at did not have any others, so it may not be an issue.
