Is there a setting to compensate for first layers spreading out?

Just wondering, for people who deal with tight fittings that require sub mm accuracy, is there a way to compensate for first couple of layers spreading out a bit? ( I'm guessing due to the constant heat from the heated bed)

Or should I just reduce the temperature in the profile and put more glue instead?

I think you are talking about what is commonly referred to as "elephant's foot". See the "Initial Layer Horizontal Expansion" setting: https://github.com/Ghostkeeper/SettingsGuide/blob/master/resources/articles/shell/xy_offset_layer_0.md

Thanks for pointing me to the right direction! It's kinda hard searching for obscure settings dealing with obscure issues. So they call it "Elephant's Foot". Now I know!
