Start G-Code

by wjh2

Using custom Start G-Code and End G-Code in "Printer Settings"

The PrusaSlicer 2.0 Start G-code section under "Printer Settings" executes after the bed heats up, but prior to the extruder heating up.
Which is explained in the help message that pops up when you hover over the start g-code section and it appears that the help message may try to explain how to circumvent this, but I can't understand what it means.

Can anybody explain how to execute this start-up g-code AFTER both the bed and the extruder heat up?

Here is the G-code that I use prior to printing (pretty basic - works great on S3D)

M117 Purge extruder
G92 E0 ; reset extruder
G1 Z1.0 F3000 ; move z up little to prevent scratching of surface
G1 X0.1 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; move to start-line position
G1 X0.1 Y200.0 Z0.3 F1500.0 E15 ; draw 1st line
G1 X0.4 Y200.0 Z0.3 F5000.0 ; move to side a little
G1 X0.4 Y20 Z0.3 F1500.0 E30 ; draw 2nd line
G92 E0 ; reset extruder\
