Standby Temp setting.

I have noticed that if i have use the setting to change the extruder Temp at a specific layer, that S3D inputs an M104 command to change the extruder temp. The problem is that this also changes the standby temp (which is set in the starting script using G10 commands) to match the active temp.

This is only an issue when changing temperatures at certain layers, so its obviously related to this feature. I remember in V4 being able to go into the firmware Config for S3D to make changes to prevent that, but don't see that feature in V5.

Starting Script:

T0 ; Select tool 0
M140 S[bed0_temperature] R60 ; set the active and standby temperatures for heatbed
G10 P0 S[extruder0_temperature] R155 ; set the active and standy temperatures
G10 T-1 ; Set extruder to standby temp
M116 H0 ; Wait for bed to reach temperature
G28 ; home all axis
G10 P0 S[extruder0_temperature] ; set extruder to temp
M116 ; wait for temperatures to reach their targets
G4 S3 ; wait 3 seconds
G30 ; Probe Z axis
G1 E12 ; undo ending script retraction
G92 E0 ; zero the extruded length
G29 S1 ;enable mesh bed compensation

Gcode snippet where the temp setting problem occurs:
G1 E-3.00000 F1920
; layer 3, Z = 1.5000
M104 S245 T0
; feature outer perimeter
G1 Z1.9000 F1800
