I'm having trouble resizing the screen of the manage printer screen on my Mac in Cura 5.2.2.  The start and end g-code are in very small windows that I can't resize.  How can I resize those windows, or failing that, where do the start and end g-code scripts live in Cura for Mac version 5.2.2 so that I can edit them directly?

    First, make sure you make a change to both the Start G-code and End G-Code in the Machine Settings dialog. Any change will do, just as long as the Start and End G-Code are no longer the default (so making a change and then changing it back exactly will not do; it has to be different than the default).

     

    Go to Help -> Show configuration folder, and navigate to the "definition_changes" folder. The (modified) Start and End Gcode are in a file ending with _settings.inst.cfg. You will want to close Cura before you open and edit the file; Cura does not notice when you make changes to the file until it is started anew and may overwrite your changes with what it thinks is the "current" version when it quits.

    Let me add:

    Usually the whole machine settings window can be resized. The gcode area will make use of the additional space.

    Besides that - copy/paste (and TextEdit) is a common method to edit longer scripts.
