Firmware Retraction seems broken

Postby angrycockles » Fri Jun 18, 2021 7:19 pm

I'm on version 4.1.1 and I have firmware retraction checkbox set for my printer, however G10/G11 commands are not being inserted into the gcode file. Happens regardless of the retraction checkbox state in the Extruder tab or Ooze tab etc.

Ok. I tracked down the bug. Even if the user has firmware retraction enabled, you must still specify a retraction amount. The expected behavior should be to grey out fields that don't apply to firmware retraction. The user should still be able to specify where retraction should occur such as the retraction attributes in the "Ooze" tab, but irrelevant fields need to be disabled. The only thing that should be enabled on the "Extruder" tab is the retraction checkbox itself.
