Preview Mode Speed

How do I adjust the speed of "Preview" in Cura?  Also, is there a way to run the whole program or is it one layer at a time only?  


I'm a new user and the search function has yielded FAR too many results to sift through.

    This is something I would like to know, too.
    It's not a big issue because I can just grab the slider on the right and move it up and down and see how it's progressing, but for some models, I'd like to zoom in very close and just watch, especially so I could see the transition between layers.

    I've learned a lot about making, for instance, "Tree" supports better by sliding the preview thing around and checking distances from the model.

    Hope somebody addresses this.  Seems like it must be set somewhere, just hope it's user definable.  Having to drag the mouse all the time is really a drag, so to speak, I'd like to watch it run while eating or something other than waiting for the grass to grow...  Take care, thanks for bringing it up...
