Set printer ready on printer itself?

Hi there

Got a question, maybe it's possible and I haven't found the solution yet:

I have a queue of 10 items waiting to be printed. Until now, I always need to click on "Set ready" in Prusa Connect. But whilst I'm preparing the printer to be ready (eg. change sheet or filament), it would be nice if I could set the printer ready right on the printer itself. Did I miss that somewhere?

Secondly, is it possible to delete multiple items on the printer at once, similar to what's already available within "Connect Files"? Until now, I need to open each item, delete it and so on.

Best Answer by Tojik:

Hi, if you are on the MK4, the set ready option is in the control menu on the 5.1.0 FW (might be github downloads only for now)

If on MK3, you need to create a folder on the SD named "PrusaLink menu", then put the SD back inside the printer and print a file SETREADY.G that appeared in the folder, that sets your printer to ready. Next release we'll have it supported properly.

As for mass deletion, sorry to dissapoint you but I am not aware that it's possible.

I have just came to the same problem - multiple printers, all with over 100+ files.

There is really no way to do "Select all" -> "Delete"?

I can't imagine that.

Hi, sorry, we really do not have this function in the firmware, we would have to send delete commands for each single file and that would end up being horrendously slow. You can send a request through the connect feedback form, that's probably the best way to ask for features now.
