Does anyone know how to remove the extra wall Cura adds to top/bottom layers when filling the skin?

Because I don't have any infill there isn't anything underneath that wall to hold it there once I begin the top layers. So, it will begin to sag and the skin will also sag with it because it sticks to that wall. I would like the skin to stick directly to the inner wall instead. (Or maybe Cura can begin printing the extra wall one layer before this and have it be 50% overlapping from the inner wall so as to build a layer of support before the first top layer gets printed.)

 

I am attaching two images within Cura for reference. One will show the extra wall being printed with nothing underneath to support it. And the other will show the skin being filled in.

 

Hopefully someone has any idea of a workaround.

Thanks!

    Found the reason. It disappears when concentric pattern layer is selected but appears when lines pattern is chosen. Setting visibility dtrangely doesn't show the exclamation mark that notifies when a setting isn't visible for a reason on this one.
