Material change mid-print

I've recently transitioned from Simplify3D to PrusaSlicer which on the whole I much prefer.
However, I'm looking to print something at the moment and mid-print (at a specific layer) I need to change from PLA to a flexible material.

 
This means not only do I need to initiate a filament change at that layer but need to apply different print settings after the change.
Is this something that's possible with PrusaSlicer or will I have to still use Simplify3D for that?

 

Thanks

You can use modifiers to apply different settings pretty much everywhere you want.

RE: Material change mid-print

The modifier only allows you to apply one parameter at a time. If one wants to switch between flexible and e.g. PETG, that's not very practical because there are several parameters involved and you'd have to copy all of them manually. Is there a way to achieve that?
