Start a new print upon pause to change filament

What is the problem?

I have been using Z offset command in Cura 5.1 to add 2nd color to top of print. Is there a procedure for removing first set of gcode and putting 2nd set of gcode in action.

What did you already try to solve it?

Presently I have to restart Octoprint to put 2nd gcode in place

Have you tried running in safe mode?

No

Did running in safe mode solve the problem?

Hello @Cadman

Isn't it more easy, to insert a M600 at that place where to swap the filament ?

or @PAUSE and more-nifty-pause-and-resume in case HOST_ACTION_COMMANDS isn't supported by the firmware...
