How to move toolhead during pause?

Hi all! 

Mid my 3rd print after assembly, noticed a blob on the extruder, wanted to clean it. Clicked pause and toolhead moves to the back. Would like a way to move the toolhead from menu while print is paused. Is this somewhere? Can't find it, just seems like some functionality should be available. As in MK4 you can move Z axis, for example (and more, not sure?).

Thanks!

RE: How to move toolhead during pause?

AFAIK, that's a missing feature. I made a request on github a couple weeks ago for both the ability to move the axis on pause, and for an option to turn off automatically moving the toolhead on pause.

Weird that it wasn't a thing from the getgo. Used it quite a bit on my MK3.

Thanks. Could you link to Github, would like to chime in as this being useful.

3 days in, there's a bunch of things like this in the printer, usability changes, that feel are still needed. I hope (and imagine very likely) these changes will come with time; it's good the focus now is on print quality and stringing.
