Today I'd like to update the start g-code, but the text box cannot be displayed for both start / end gcode.

May I know any suggestion to fix it, or any alternatives to edit the setting?

 

Cura is 4.5.0 and Windows 10

    There are a few ways to do this:

    It can be edited in the printer definition. If it's a printer that is included natively in Cura (added from the Add Printer menu), on Windows you can go to 'Program Files/Ultimaker Cura 4.5/resources/definitions/' and edit it there. If you downloaded configuration from elsewhere it will be in the configuration folder (Help>Show Configuration Folder then click definitions)

     

     

     

    Another functional work around (and what Cura actually does when you edit from that window) is go to the configuration folder (Help>Show Configuration Folder), open the definition_changes folder, find 'your+printer+name_settings.inst.cfg', and under the [values] section insert "machine_start_gcode = your start gcode" and "machine_end_gcode= your end gcode"

    Thank you so much😇 according to your suggestion, I directly edit the json file under Program Files/Ultimaker Cura 4.5/resources/definitions/ and the update was activated.
