Again, let's just understand that 3rd party slicing does not include the proprietary image file along side the gcode file to show up on the LCD of the printer. This does not mean that the file is not recognized. You can print the file, it doesn't matter one bit, it's just not going top give you that pretty image on the LCD with a preview.

I made a quick spreadsheet to make the End of Spool feature more useful. Go to the System Info menu and record the Encoder Value. Pull your 4 filaments through the scroll wheel and record the value after each one. Look at the calibration in Chroma and get the Pulses per mm value. Enter it into the spreadsheet and you'll get the lengths for End of Spool without having to run a measuring tape along long filaments.

I suggest entering some insanely long value for filament 4, so it'll just feed through and you don't get left with a little stub like the other 3.

And... here's one with a macro that will generate the MSF directly, with support for up to 20 filaments. It cycles 1,2,3,4,1,2,3,4... You'll need to do a change filament on Palette after it's done with it and feeding the next one. Don't change the active filament because it doesn't splice for some reason.
