Cura 2.1.2 doesn't load retraction distance from selected profile

For my Prusa, I set the retraction distance to 1.0mm, but whenever I select any profile, the retraction distance always reverts to 6.5mm. Has anyone else seen this? Any workarounds? Anyone seen any other customized settings that fail to load/save?

    Same problem here!

    Here's my hypothesis:

    In the folder where cura stores settings saved through the menu, the profile includes all the overrides including material temp and retraction and everything. (checked with text editor)

    Similarly, when I export the .curaprofile, it has all the overrides including material temp and retraction and everything.

    As of now, Cura has both material and general slicing presets, but you can only manage and save the general presets through the gui. My guess is that material profiles are made to always override general profile. Which sounds like a potential design fallacy since the only way to even see what's in them is text editor.

    As of now the included material profiles are just messed up.

    The PLA one does not even contain material print temperature! It only has:

    material_bed_temperature and retraction_amount.

     

    SO SOLUTION THAT WORKS for now

    is to manually edit the included material profiles in a text editor or add your own so that the there's no retraction settings! then the general slicing profiles do work as expected!

    Keep it simple.

    Like this pla:

     

    [general]version = 1type = materialname = jb_PLA[settings]material_print_temperature = 210material_bed_temperature = 60
