first layer retraction this not appear to be working

Posted · first layer retraction this not appear to be working


c u r a  version number 4.13.1


I'm doing a two color print, and the face of the box prints down against the bed. because it's two color the text gets printed first, then it prints around the text and the hole cutouts. the problem I'm having, is I cannot seem to find any setting to allow retraction on the first layer and as you can see by the picture below, it just keeps extruding between the holes and makes the front of the box look not as pretty as I would like it to. am I missing something or is this setting simply not allowed.
