No, not Babs.

You know how when you change a setting in your Profile, it puts a 'Star' by its name in the Profile Drop-Down? (I'm talking Cura 2.x.x.x.x.x.x.... here. No, really, that's what it does. Honest.....


I do that a lot (change settings in my 'Master' profile. Then goof around and do some other things only to come back days, or hours, minutes, or even Seconds later (yes, I have a short-term memory issue)...

Hmmm....what was I talking about???

Oh, yeah! That Star!

So, I forget what I changed and I have to open and scroll through each setting to find what I made different (one of this things is just not the same...) and set it back.

Well, hell, that could take seconds! Or even Minutes!! OMG!! Time is precious and I could go at any minute! (Probably not, but you never know when that plane it going to crash into your house like on The World According to Garp (just saying..))

So it would be like, ya-know, really cool(ish) if Cura magically put an 'Star" next to the Top-Level setting name (Quality, Shell, Infill, etc.etc.etc.yada yada yada...) where that hidden change... 'hides' ...so you could quickly find it and set it back before it mutates into some super interstellar mutant virus from space!

Earth would be saved as with all humanity! You would be Gods! (Or Legends ... of Tomorrow)

Ok, back to my Benadryl and Whisky...


P.S. Oh Geez! I just noticed I've been on this Board for a Whole Year!! (Got my 1 Year Trophy) That went fast...look at all my WRINKLES!!!

Probably time to shave...

    My hair turned a shade lighter gray just reading your forum post ;-) Lots of words for a simple question.

    The star indicates that you made changes to the settings, so the current settings don't fully reflect the settings stored in the profile.

    and than?

    Remember in which category(s) the setting(s) in question is(are), close the profile manager, open the category(s) ...

    wouldn't it be nice if a "star" (or whatsoever) in the category headlines indicates "ey man here are changes" ??? 8)

    berndjm: You nailed it!

    Just thinking it would be nice to have a Star on the category containing the alternations :)

    Bad Cold + Benadryl + Whisky = Goofy post. Sorry

    That's a fairly good suggestion for a future version. Here's another one: if you have a good idea, don't bury it in a rant ;-)

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
