Cura layer count starting number in 'Preview' is different than in G-code

Posted · Cura layer count starting number in 'Preview' is different than in G-code

I am using Cura 4.7.

The starting layer count in 'Preview' starts at 1, where the actual G-code starts at 0.

This creates a problem when using 'Post Processing Scripts' such as ChangeAtZ with layer no. as trigger.

 

Is there a way to change either preview layer counts or the G-code counts to start at the same number?

    No.  A post processor plugin was tried but there were side effects.  Cura layers are base 1 and gcode layers are base 0.  I have about 10 slicers.  The only one I know of that starts gcode at 1 is Simplify3d.
