Overall speed setting in Cura?

Hi,

on the UM2 LCD panel there is a very useful function to change the print speed percent wise. So I can change the speed during printing from e.g. 100% to 80% or even from 100% to 115%. This reduces all speeds simultanously (first layer speed, infill speed, bottom/top leyer speed, inner perimter speed, outer perimeter speed, etc.) simulatnoulsy. This is very convenient since I don't have to change each speed one by one.

Is there something similar available in Cura?

When I want to test a new profile I created in Cura then on the printer I change the speed to get a better result depending on what I see when watching the printer.

Then I realize e.g. slowing down the speed to e.g. 80% leads into a better print result.

Now back in Cura I want to reduce the speed also to 80%. But in Cura I have to calculate 80% one by one for each speed.

Is there any feature I can set 80% only one time for all speeds?

Thanks...

    If it is really important for you at various times then Slic3r lets you set the various speeds as %s of the prime print speed. You just need to then reduce the prime print speed by 20% or whatever and they will all reduce by 20%

    You still can use TweakAtZ for that purpose (since V4.0).
