I would download Printrun and use that, both for controlling the printer and for actual printing: http://koti.kapsi.fi/~kliment/printrun/

daid is doing a re-design of the whole interface of cura. Unfortunately he removed some functionality before adding it back in which is why the print interface in cura is a bit sparse at the moment. The new printing interface is editable by anyone and I think there might be one or two people working on improving it, but it might take time. For example here's owen's mod:

Sergei, if i need the nozzle heated i use either the bed levelling wizard or the dual extrusion calibration. Both heat up the nozzle(s).

You could also start a print, and click "pause" before it starts actually printing anything, yet it will heat the nozzle.
