Any way to change display to time remaining instead of time when done?

I really like how the fw on the MK3S shows time remaining to end of print as well as time to next color change.  Is there a way to make the Mini do this as well?  I can do the subtraction but then I have to find a clock.  Also, the Z display shows the real value including the adjustment for gradients.  I really prefer the MK3S here, too, since I really don't care about the adjustment for gradient and just want to know what sliced layer it is on (i.e. indicate the current Z as drawn - not after correction).  I suspect there isn't an option for that but any way to change the time remaining option?

You can change that in the display settings, to show the nominal Z height.

Yeah, me too. Would prefer to see that on the Mini too instead of the time the print will finish. That's just how my brain is wired.

My Mini+ used to tell me time remaining until I updated the firmware to 4.4.1. Why did this change? And why isn’t there an option in settings to toggle between the 2?

I think the time when done only appears if the printer is connected to the internet (wifi or cable). Therefore, I am just able to see the time left when internet is off. 

It should be nice being able to toggle between both of them nevertheless

I was wondering the same thing;   

I wish we could toggle back to the the way it was:  print time remaining (hrs/minutes) vs. showing a Clock time that it will finish.   (I prefer time remaining ).   I'm on firmware 4.4.1/Mini+ with Wifi Module.     If I turn off the wifi during a print (and disconnect from the internet), it still shows the Clock time. not min/hrs remaining.
