Need to change flow rate from 1.12 to 1.06 after the first layer

Hello All, I have a unique request/ question that I need help with. I own a manufacturing business and recently purchased the X1C for prototyping. what we make requires a quality control which brings me to the question. I have been unsuccessful in printing TPU, I am needing the first layer lines completely sealed. I was able to get the result but have a rob peter to pay Paul situation. The flow ratio was increased to 1.12, temp increased, and speed slowed.
Now After this first layer, I can set the temps and speed back to normal rates like 240 and 100mms but I cannot change the flow rate back down to 1.06. Does anyone know a way around this.

** I need to change the flow rate from 1.12 to 1.06 after the first layer.**

There’s a setting for that in the slicers.

Assuming it’s a multiplier for the normal flow rate, I think setting it to 1.057 would turn the 1.06 to 1.12 for the first layer only. And you have a similar setting for top surface if needed.
