Pausing between Objects (not layers)

Folks in SLicer I see we have the option to put code to be executed between objects.  I have a First Later test that prints 3 squares 12mmX12mm in a diagonal across the print bed. I use this so I can tweak the Z height between each square and it helps hugely fine tuning Z level. What I would like is that as Im printing 3 objects that it stops after each one so I can inspect the results and easily put in a new value for the next. I have tried M601 as in the layer pause but it doesn't stop.

I am hugely ignorant of G-Codes so any help would be appreciated.

RE:

Mine does, see attached file

However, in THIS particular print with the settings and filament I used second part just build up a blob on the nozzle.
Maybe I should have check nozzle before starting second part, and/or clean sheet, who knows 🤔

Back to your question, the printer pause between objects!

I know RTFM has its place and I had already read up on M601 but its not working. Providing 3MF like below is more helpful.

Ringarn I first tried adding your code in between objects 

;BETWEEN_OBJECTS

M601

That didn't work so then tried your 3mf and changed it to Mk3 Printer and nozzle at 0.25 as the only changes and it didn't stop. I wonder if there is something else I have to do for Custom G-Code to be recognised

Just looked at the g-code output and if I am reading correctly its commented out. I presume ; is a G-code comment

; between_objects_gcode = ;BETWEEN_OBJECTS\nM601

Uncommenting that line in gcode itself has zero impact

Sorry for being away...

The line you commented out is at the end of file is from settings..

Could you please save, zip and upload your 3mf- file where you have problems
