Prime the extruder by a LCD function ?

I would like to prime the extruder with some mm's of filament, before starting the print.
Is there any function on the smart-LCD (on my Ramps) which I could use ?

I can only find the heat and the home function....

Orca V4.4 rebuild to Ramps with Mk8 and E3D, as well as a Rostock Delta Mini and an OLO in backorder :-)

You can add custom code to the start code in slic3r for this. I added the following:

G0 X5 Y5 F5000 ; Go to 5,5
G0 Z0.35 ; Lower the extruder to 0.35mm
G0 E5 ; Extrude 5mm of filament
