Method to limit brim locations or ease removal?

Is there a way to limit the locations where a brim is placed? I am having the issue that the brim is placed into small gaps on the bottom of my model and it's hard to remove them later. I was hoping that there would be a modifier in PrusaSlicer that would remove the brim. But the supportBlocker does not block brims unfortunately. Otherwise, is there a way to modify the brim so that it's easier to remove?

thanks!

I don't think there is a way to modify brims like you want. At this point you might want to eliminate the brim setting, and manually apply 1-layer thick primitive parts to where you want the brim (sort of like the mouse ear technique).
