Problems within CURA Preferences

Posted · Problems within CURA Preferences

Hi, I have an issue with Cura 2.1.99

After doing some try-and-error sessions with Polymax PLA I found good settings for my specific needs (small solid parts (infill 100%) for technical use with highest possible precision).

Then I created this material in the “Preferences” window (Cura->Settings->Material->Manage Materials )by duplicating the Ultimaker PLA to:

Display Name -> “Polymax PLA”

Brand -> “Polymaker”

I left Material Type, Color, Density and Diameter unchanged.

So far, so good…

But now I want to edit *Properties in [Tab] Information (e.g. Density and Cost) and several values in [Tab] Print settings by first clicking [Edit] and then changing some values.

*(Going to -> Settings -> Material -> Manage Materials, then arriving in the “Preferences” window)

But….

After editing values, then closing all, even Cura and then re-opening Cura and Preferences I find the changes I made undone!!!

Exporting and re-importing profile gives no solution, grrrrrrrrr!

And why are some Properties (e.g. Filament cost) grayed out and therefor anyway uneditable???

What am I doing wrong, or…… what is the real problem?

Might it be due to the fact that Cura 2.1.99 is Beta? (Why called 2.3 on download?)

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
