I used to print at 0.2 the whole print part and where i needed the part to get more detailed I used to manually change it to the desired value I needed using the support blocker...

Meanwhile a long time since I needed that again and now... it doesn't exist anymore in Cura 5.3? I do I set different layer heights in different Z areas in the same print?

 

The best I can do now is with adaptative layer height? OMG... 

 

I attach 2 files trying to show my setup... I am pretty sure I could do that before.... Did it change in some settings placement?

    I've only been using Cura since v4.4 and no versions since then have had "adjustable layer height" whether with blockers or a setting (other than Adaptive Layers).  I've always had to splice gcode files together to get the effect.

    What version do you think that was enabled in?

    Cura never had this feature. It might be that you had a plugin that somehow did the splicing that Greg mentioned.
