There are 2 types of travel moves - those with retraction and those without.  Are you trying to say you want "no retraction" in a certain area?  Or do you want it to do "always retraction" in a certain area?  

 

You can use an STL model/mesh as a support blocker but you can also use it to modify many of the settings.  45 different settings it looks like.  But none of the "Travel" settings are included in that list of 45 settings unfortunately.  (like "enable retraction" or "combing mode")

    Wait - do you want travel moves to avoid an area?  There is an option called "avoid printed parts when travelling".  Maybe that's what you want?

    I think maybe you can create a complicated shape in the "avoid volume".  An STL.  Insert that mesh in the area where you don't want to print.  Then click on this mesh and give it infill of 0%, walls=0 top/bottom=0.  And it should print nothing but now "avoid printed parts" I think will go around your "avoid" mesh.
