Any way to remove the pause between parts in sequenced print?

When I enable "Print Sequence" "One at a time", the printer moves off to one side then waits (I presume checking temps) before starting the next part. This always causes excess filament to extrude which is then often causing issues with the next print.

 

Is there a way to stop the pause as I don't see any need for it when doing any prints where I use "Print Sequence"?

    This is probably because you have different temperature settings for layer 1.   

     

    If you have a higher bed or tool temp for layer 1, then when you move to the next part, it has to heat back up again.

     

    To remove the pause, choose the same temperature settings for layer 1 and the rest of the print.

    Sorry to revive this, but I wanted to add my fix to this issue in case anyone is still struggling with this.

     

    nighthawklabs' comment put me on the right track, but I was still having this issue even though I did not have any temperature changes in my print. What worked for me was going through the gcode and finding the instructions between the individual prints and deleting any instance of the "M190 S60" command. The number after "S" will depend on what you've set your build plate temperature to, but the whole line should be removed. M190 is a command to set the build plate temperature and WAIT until it has been reached before proceeding. I found this caused pauses even though my temperatures were not changing. Maybe something with the process of how the printer verifies the temperature is correct. It's worth noting that my gcode files contained both M140 and M190 commands. My understanding is that M140 is a similar command to M190 (sets the build plate temp), but it is handled in the background and does not impose a hold. I have left the M140 commands and my temperatures are maintained, but there are no longer any pauses between the parts.

     

    Example before and after of the sections I'm referring to:
