I'm interested in this post as I too am having some problems with pressure advance when doing small segments and I have turned it off until I can work out what is happening. It is great for large prints but have problems with small, fussy prints.
I have been through all the tabs in S3D but cannot find a setting for, 'speed of small perimeters'. Can you tell me where it is?

RE: Pressure Advance idea for arcs
RE: Printing mirrored?
I don't know if you have solved this issue but my two pence worth. Take a look in S3D; goto 'Tools', 'Options' and open the 'Machine' tab. In the middle you have 'Flip build table axis'. If the Y axis is checked, uncheck it and if it is unchecked then check it. This will flip your your image and build the correct way round.
RE: Retraction on the fly
Thanks, Dougal, I had already worked that one out before I started a print! It would have been painstakingly slow.
However, I have noticed that I am now getting far more retractions than I ever have done before. On a circular part with three perimeters, my printer is retracting at the end of each perimeter - never done that before. Also, with far more retractions, some of them on ridiculously small moves, the accumulation of all the retractions, in a small space, is causing some problems immediately after and some areas of infill/surface are sparse.
RE: Retraction on the fly
I am still confused.
In the tabs of the 'Process' I have unchecked 'Retraction', turned on 'Use M101/102/103' and added 'M207 S5 R-0.1 F60 T30 Z0; Set retraction parameters S - Length of retract, R - Extra length on re-start, F - Retract Speed in mm/min, T - Re-start speed, Z - Nozzle lift on retract.' to the Retraction Script.
The resultant g code has M103 and M101 but no values set. What am I doing wrong?
Here is a snippet of code:
G1 X-28.049 Y0.016 E0.0008
G1 X-28.005 Y0.000 E0.0023
G1 X-26.577 Y0.000 F4800
G1 X-27.885 Y-0.467 E0.0665 F1800
G1 X-27.894 Y-0.470 E0.0005
Retraction on the fly
Is it possible to alter the retraction distance on the fly? It would make it so much easier to fine tune the printer if I could. I have played about with pressure advance and concluded that, with my setup and bowden tube, I cannot find the sweet spot so I am reverting to retraction alone which has been working pretty well in the past. Not got it right yet hence my question.
RE: Upgrade to 1.19.2 pear shaped
Don't ask me why but I seem to have success!
I followed the instructions 'Connecting to your access point using firmware 1.19 or later' and downloaded the terminal program. Went through the process of SSID and Password and got the right response. I then went ahead with unplugging the USB and firing up the printer. Everything seems to be working just fine and it is reporting all the latest versions.
So, the big question is why did it hang when upgrading and never report it had succeeded?
