Change default extruder

What is the problem?

We have a 3D printer with 2 extruders. T0 is the default, T1 is the secondary extruder. I want to set T1 to be the default if G-code file does not have T0 or T1 code.

What did you already try to solve it?

Checked the settings, searched for plugins, googled.

Systeminfo Bundle

You can download this in OctoPrint's System Information dialog ... no bundle, no support!) (36.7 KB)

Additional information about your setup

OctoPrint version, OctoPi version, printer, firmware, browser, operating system, ... as much data as possible

OctoPrint Version 1.8.1
OctoPi Version 0.18.0, running on Raspberry Pi 3 Model B Rev 1.2
Printer: LeapFrog Bolt Pro

This sounds to me like something that should be dealt with in the slicer, if the slicer is properly configured then it will not have an issue.

You could add a T1 command to the start gcode in OctoPrint, then if there is nothing set in the gcode file it won't be changed.
