This only occurs if using legacy tools with an external gcode file imported with the preprocessor.

If you use the preprocessor, the gcode becomes a custom inside the job. It can be postprocessed and is more useful. If you insist on importing gcode to a path object outside the job hierarchy, you can still use the new toolbits instead of legacy tools
