XL Toolhead Selection and/or Macros

This UI workflow would be really helpful if we had the right buttons or give us the ability to make our own macros like in OctoPrint.

Before starting a new print on the XL 5th, I like to make sure all the nozzles are clean.  So this is what I need in Prusa Connect:

1) Preheat all nozzles to 145C

2) Select Tool 1

3) Move the Toolhead to the front middle of the machine so I can inspect the nozzle and clean it with tweezers and a paper towel.

4) Park Tool 1

5) Select Tool 2.... rinse and repeat above steps.

Pretty straight forward process but it is very time consuming to use the knob.  PC could really make this easier.

RE: XL Toolhead Selection and/or Macros

you could just make a new gcode file with just that and 'print' it just to trigger given tool changes, and press pause manually when issue is visible (not sure if print head is moved into specific location though)

 

See my GitHub and printables.com for some 3d stuff that you may like.

Can you add it to the start G-Code in the printer settings?

Possibly yes. Or I could just keep using Octoprint Macros and not use Prusa Connect.
