I have some problems to change the property of a support_mesh into support_mesh_drop_down . I always have the Drop down support mesh checked in the Per object settings  panel ?

Any advice would be welcome.

    I'm not sure of that the the property support_mesh_drop_down is set on the machine level. Trying to set to false. But the result is always the same.


            machine_manager = CuraApplication.getInstance().getMachineManager()        
            global_stack = machine_manager.activeMachine
            global_stack.setProperty("support_mesh_drop_down", "value", False)

    But on the global stack the property is set to False :

    It's only settable in the per objects setting:

        "label": "Drop Down Support Mesh",
        "description": "Make support everywhere below the support mesh, so that there's no overhang in the support mesh.",
        "type": "bool",
        "default_value": true,
        "enabled": "support_mesh",
        "settable_per_mesh": true,
        "settable_per_extruder": false,
        "settable_per_meshgroup": false,
        "settable_globally": false
