OK I screwed up :(

I was playing around with the Shell settings. I turn on the Wall Count just to see what it was. Then I turn it back to hidden setting. Now I can not change the Wall Thickness'

So the question is how do I get turn back on?

    If you turn the visibility of Wall Count back on then click on the curved arrow. this will reset it back to default and should work again.

    The "Wall Thickness" setting got disabled because it was overridden by the value you entered in "Wall Line Count". Just because you hid the "Wall Line Count", it does not mean this value has gone away (it is like sweeping the value under the carpet; it is still there).

    If you press the "revert arrow", this removes the absolute value and reverts back to the value that is calculated from the "parent" setting.

    To make you understand, keep both the "Wall Line Count" and the "Wall Thickness" visible. Now change the "Wall Thickness" value and you should see the "Wall Line Count" value update automatically. The latter is calculated from the former.

    When there are nested settings, CuraEngine always only uses the last setting in the branch. The parent settings are mostly convenience settings; it is often easier to think in millimeters than in the number of perimeters and calculate that back from the line width.

      • 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
