As seen in this example picture; what are meanings of that color lines ?

RED is outer line, green inner, rest are infill - but why different colors infill ? I was wondering :)

    I think infill is not required to show in 3 different colors, because it only confuses the user, and there is no need to that ?

    maybe when m0use is placed over the line, that shows what is is what line be useful option ...

    And if I might post a little semi-related request. Unless I've completely missed it (entirely possible) there doesn't seem to be an option to show only one slice at a time? In Netfabb you can choose to show only the "active" slice as you scroll through them and I find myself using that quite often to see how the infill/perimeters/etc look for tricky areas so I can quickly re-slice with different settings if need be.

    Nope, it always shows all the slices below the current slice. It does show lower slicer darker, so you should be able to see the difference between the currently viewing slice and the rest.
