Changing order of colors on first layer

This has been asked before, but no answer was provided publicly: How to change the printing order of the bodies on the 1st layer?

If you are printing details like text on the first layer, you need to have those details printed BEFORE the surrounding color is printed. If not, the surrounding color will bleed into the path of where the text should be, and the text will not print as cleanly as it should.

I can do this manually using Chroma and S3D, but cannot figure out how to force Canvas to print my text first. Making the text the first STL in the model and making it material #1 does nothing. How can this be achieved?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?
