Printer asking me to press knob to unload filament even I did not ask it to

Hi, I did not set a Color Change command on the vertical slide but for the past few prints using only one filament, the printer stopped at 2mm and asked me to unload and reload filaments. What could have gone wrong? I did try out a multi filament related file which somebody gave me the last few days. Perhaps somehow some settings got changed without  my knowing?

Impossible to answer unless you save the project as a 3mf file from Prusaslicer (Save as), ZIP it (important!), and upload it here so we can see the settings. If I had to take a guess… You're saying you're working with a multi-filament file, so I guess that's where whoever created it told the slicer to switch extruders, and so it will unload the filament and prompt you to insert the new one. This is not driven by a color change command but by assigning extruders to different parts of the model.
