Solved Paneldue - Filaments

Do you guys know if there is a way to add the filaments unload/load/change on the Paneldue?
I have to use my phone to do this but would love a way to do it right on the panel.

Maybe there is another way, but any macro you add will be available on PanelDue

Sorry for re-activating this topic, but would it in general be possible to add the same funtionality that DWC offers for filament management to the PanelDue?
Currently, I worked around that by adding macros that call M70x to to the job, but as you are limited to 4 macros it is not possible to have buttons for PLA, PETG and TPU on the screen together with the corresponding unload macros. At least I could not figure out how to do that with one single unload macro that recognizes the currently loaded filament and runs the matching unload macro.
Maybe someone can give me directions here, please?
@jeloneal You would have to use the full macros menu where you aren't limited to 4 macros and you can use nested folders.

@phaedrux thanks! I think I figured out a solution: if I read the G-code documentation correctly, the firmware is aware of the currently loaded filament and triggering the unload macro is using the correct macro from the respective filament folder.
That way I can have a load macro for PLA, PETG and TPU in the first 3 slots and an universal unload macro in the fourth.
