    canvas didn't even slice the bottom color portion properly, it only did 3 splices despite the color view showing the color at the bottom the preview after slicing does not.....  after splice 3 it errored with no pings detected.... but there were 6 in total..... the print finished with the last transition being late by 2 layers.... but i can't rate it due to the "no pings" error.   seems canvas is too buggy.

    I also have a problem with the bottom center color not showing after slicing in Canvas. I tried using Safari v.12.02 on a Mac (macOS Mojave v. 10.14.2) and Chrome Version 71.0.3578.98 also on the same Mac. I then tried Edge on a PC. All with the same result - No center color on the sliced model.

    i guess chroma is the only way, canvas is probably 6+ months away from being useful.  when i started this print it also started at 170c instead of 250c that i put... it's just not ready for any serious usage.

    I'm also experiencing the slicing of the bottom problem, and the no pings. I run connected mode on a cr10

    I switched to using Chroma with Slicer PE. My first Calibration Print did not quite finish, so reset the Palette2 again and calibrated the Palette 2 Pro. The next calibration print was acceptable. The transition was a little underloaded, but since all else was good I have moved on. The Multi-Color Earbud Case is on the printer now. 

    I think I like using Chroma better than Canvas at this point. It allows me to use the slicer and settings I am most comfortable with and convert that to files for the Palette 2 Pro.

    I'll give Canvas another try in a month or so when some of the options available in Chroma are added to Canvas (like infill transitioning).  

    Hooray for vacation - because I have been at this for 7 hours so far today. :-) By New Year's Day I hope to be an expert.

    My guess is you'll have better luck trying with linear advance turned off,   i can see it calibrating based on one print then being off on the next since the extrusion rate is entirely dynamic... maybe.

    turns out my calibration print was spot on for 0.3mm layers anyway so i started a larger model and it's perfect so far....
