Tool change gcode and start gcode

Cura seems to have a bug where the tool change scripts and starting scripts are populated but whited out in the machine setup menu. If you click on the whited out textbox the text will then show.

    Hey Jacob,

    I have the same issue but the code doesn't appear when I click into the box?

    On a side note, when I look at my start/stop gcode this appears. I'm no expert or even proficient with coding but is this right?

    I am trying to add a start/end gcode to a print which was made in slice-up software. Any ideas?

    If you are opening an already made gcode I don't think Cura can modify it. You can modify in any basic text editor and just copy your starting script at the beginning and the ending script at the end.
