How do I slow the printing on overhangs?

Hi! I'm trying to figure out how to slow the printing speed on overhangs to improve the quality. Any tips? Thanks!

You could use the bridging speed override combined with apply bridging to perimeters in order to have both bridges and overhanging perimeters print at a specified % of your outline speed.

These settings can be found in the "Other" and "Speeds" tabs.

Unfortunately that only partially works. See attached screen shot; I think the area is too small for it to be considered a bridge (on the top left area). The lower area is considered a bridge.

Any ideas?
