Tool change script for even print a purge tower and a purge wall

Good morning, I'm using IdeaMaker as slicer with my dual extruder CoreXY and it works very well except for one thing wich I really hate: when a tool change occurs, the GCODE raises the nozzles just by 0,2mm then waits for the new tool to reach the active temperature then goes in the purge tower and goes on. This is an issue because raising the nozzles so few damages the print...I've made a tool chang .g script to raise the nozzles by 3mm and this works, the problem is that the nozzles stays above the print until the new tool reaches the active temperature then goes down above the print and then goes above the purge tower...I've tried without success to have help on Raise3D forum to know if it's possible to change this behavior.
For me the best tool change would be raise the nozzles, goes immediately above the purge tower, wait for the new nozzle to reach the active temperature then goes down and print the purge tower....I don't think IdeaMaker will allow this so I'm asking if and in case how it could be possible (without going crazy) to completely manage the tool change via some .g script, I mean raise the nozzles, print a purge tower, print a purge wall and return to the print...there are a lot of factors to manage: the relative position of the purge tower in relation with the print, its dimension, the relative position of the purge wall and its shape and I'm afraid that this factors can't be managed easily (or not at all) writing a .g script....I'd like to know how do who work with dual extruders manage this tool change, the print of the purge tower, the purge wall etc...

I have the standby temp the same as working temp. And I've written a script to compensate oozing.
Then I have a skirt around the part with full height (aka. windshield) that wipes and primes the nozzle.
I don't have a purge tower, but flush the tool in it's parking position.
good idea, I'll study it well!
