  1. Join the club... https://community.ultimaker.com/topic/34013-upgrade-from-71-to-771/
  2. Are you running Windows? I also tried to update to 4.7.1 from 4.7. Running Windows 7 and I was not able to get through the initial setup screens either (Cura 4.7.1 crashes). Uninstalled Cura and all its directories I could find. Tried to revert back to 4.7. Now 4.7 crashes in the same place as 4.7.1! WTF? Some people suggest updating the graphics drivers. But, I can't even revert to the version I was running with no other system changes. Finally, I installed 4.6.2 and expect to stay with this version.
  3. I believe I saw the exact same video. I put my g-code in the "printer startcode" area. If you look in the generated g-code file, CURA just inserts the code without any modification. So, I replaced everything put in by default with my own g-code. You probably want to look at the generated g-code file anyway to verify that it does what you want. I also modified the "printer endcode" because I wanted to move the print bed to the front instead of it doing a home when the print was done. Otherwise on my printer, the bed was always moved to the back and you had to manually move the
  4. NO DISCUSSION? NO SUPPORT? Either, I'm the only one using a laptop with just the touchpad? Or, I'm the only one that finds the view control cumbersome?
  5. This forum is a little confusing to me. Maybe I didn't put my thread in the proper place. I just thought it should be with the Cura software and not the general feedback area. It's very annoying to swap hands on the touchpad to switch between pan and rotate. I thought FreeCAD was a better implementation and the ALT key was not being used by Cura. Plus a left cllick ends up selecting the model half the time instead of panning. Just holding the SHIFT or ALT key with a mouse move would avoid it. SORRY SandervG. I didn't mean to hijack your thread.
  6. READ the linked thread! Wasn't that you? If not, I'm sorry.
  7. No. You gave me the impression that it was futile to even bring up the subject. That I would be lucky to even get the documentation corrected to reflect the current operation.
  8. Wow... We have time to fool with a file prefix but we CAN'T be bothered to change the view controls when using a laptop touchpad to have them be more user friendly. What a pity.
  9. Take a look at this video: If your printer uses Marlin firmware, he is showing how to adjust it's settings. If you're unable to change them from the control panel, you will need to download the firmware, make the settings and flash the new firmware into your printer. In alternatively, he shows at timestamp 4:10 how to change the scaling in Cura. Which is what I think you are asking. There are many other videos showing this procedure.
  10. It's very annoying to swap hands on the touchpad to switch between pan and rotate. I thought FreeCAD was a better implementation and the ALT key was not being used by Cura. Plus a left cllick ends up selecting the model half the time instead of panning. Just holding the SHIFT or ALT key with a mouse move would avoid it. Also, the view rotate seems to rotate around the viewpoint instead of the object/print bed. Hence, rotation tends move the object outside the field of view.
  11. I have the same profile status error message. Tried both themes. Running Windows 10, Chrome. I just created my account yesterday.
  12. I think this video on cleaning the nozzle is a better alternative to a skirt
  13. So, this needs to be corrected? Or, changed to ALT as mentioned in my first post. ?
  14. At least fix Cura so the touchpad works as stated in the documentation. Currently, the CTRL button does NOT work. I was just suggesting you drop the click portion for touchpads.
  15. I wish the mouse view controls worked like FreeCAD. The right click for rotation is very awkward to use. In FreeCAD the view controls are: SHIFT + Mouse Move (no button click) to pan view ALT + Mouse Move (no button click) to rotate view It seems very intuitive to just hold either the CTRL or ALT key and move the mouse to pan and rotate the camera view. On Windows 10 without a mouse, Shift+Click pans and Right+Click rotates. The CTRL+Click does nothing. A weird mix of mouse and touchpad control.
