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?)
