Change Filament Mid Print

I'm trying to find a way to change filament mid print for multi-color prints with one extruder. I'm using a Tronxy P802MA with the latest Repetier Host and Firmware. Using Slic3r to slice. Is there a way to pause, change color and resume with Repetier? I've tried inserting M600 into the gcode which does nothing. The lcd display does not have a pause/resume print option or a "change filament" option. I've inserted ;@pause into the gcode which does pause the print, but I don't seem to have any control after that and can't resume the print.
Any help is appreciated.

hi, try this sequence:

;start filament swap
G91
G1 Z10
G90
G1 X0 Y200
@info tentativo di pausa
@pause
G91
G1Z-10
G90
;end filament swap

you need to edit the gcode file and add the sequence where needed
