Idea Maker slicing putting in bridging that is not needed

I print mainly samples of parts that will be extruded vinyl when produced from the factory. I have printed hundreds of extrusions and the slicing program has never before put bridging in the hollows of the extrusions.

The last two prints I have run through the slicing program have bridging. These just get in my way and have to be removed and serve no purpose that I can see in a print of a straight up extrusion.

How can I shut bridging off? I have looked in the "edit" "other" and unchecked "enable bridging detection", re-ran the slicing program and the bridging was still there. I printed the file and the bridging was in the print.

I have attached the ".idea" file, the Gcode file was too large to attach. I hope this helps.

Please help.

My mistake on the similar colors then. So this orange shade is "solid fill". It does one thin (nearly see thru) pass/layer and continues on as normal.

That being the case, (misreading the color as "bridging") how do I stop it from making these single layer "solid fill" areas. The one file I printed had only one "solid fill" layer. The file I am printing now has several at various heights of the "extrusion".

Data file attached.

Seems the structure lines are not being sliced out properly. Please modify Merge Nearby Lines to be 0.02mm to fix the issue.
