Playing a Preview in CURA 4.9 always starts on the last layer

Posted · Playing a Preview in CURA 4.9 always starts on the last layer


I've just updated from 4.8 to 4.9 and am slicing my first print. I want to check a specific layer but when I slice, preview, move the slider to a specific layer, press 'play' button at the bottom it always starts at the very last layer (the top of the model) not the layer I have changed to. I used this process regularly in 4.8. 


See picture below - I am trying to check layer 26, which is where the model changes from light grey to dark grey, but the model is printing from the top (the coloured layer).




Any ideas?

    Hi @adyj1 it looks like you want to check layer 26 with the slider from below. If use the the upper dot and slide it down, it should work!
