Using the 2 printheads for different filaments

On my Pro 2 I want to use the printheads one at a time but for different filaments, so one head PLA and the other PETG. (Thus no 2 heads printing in the same time.)
Normally in Repetier Object Placement I chose the second printhead and the printer used it. But the Pro 2 uses the first printhead always.
How can I manage this?

Hi svdv,

If you open Simplify3D and double click the Processes you will get a popup window. In this window under ''auto configure extruders'' you can choose between: Both Extruders - Left Extruder Only - Right Extruder Only. Changing this setting changes the active extruder that will be used during printing.
