1) If you made the gcode with slic3r like I do, you need to first go and add the second extruder to slic3r and make sure you have selected that before you export the gcode
2) If you scroll all the way down there should be several options to edit things. one of them will probably say "extruder" or something. It is usually set to 1. Just change it to two. Also make sure you change values like what extruder you use for supports, etc. Just go through the list, there should be plenty of stuff there to go over. It works for me with my 2.0 on official firmware.
Also a note for any one who is a rookie at importing files from slic3r to xyzware for control without modding, remember that you need the change the value of machine from daVinciF10 to daVinciF20

If your gcode doesn't look anything like mine, sorry to have wasted your time Tongue
