Installing Cura 2.5 removes profile in Cura 2.3.1 (Mac OS Yosemite)

Hey.

I wanted to have a go at the new 2.5 release of Cura with my Ultimaker Original (DIY heated bed), so i downloaded, installed with no problems.

Opened 2.5 and to my pleasant surprise it imported my old profiles from 2.3.1 so no need to redo these.

Sliced a model and saw that the start.gcode has some how changed since it now does it's priming of the nozzle, homes the z-axis and drags the head horizontally along the build plate to the start location, and does not have this nice point-to-point linear move in space as i am so used to. This drags the "booger" along and empties the nozzle of plastic so a good part of the skirt is not printed. This is no good.

I then open Cura 2.3.1 to look at my old start.gcode to do a comparison, and then i see that all profiles are gone (it prompts me to add a new printer)

Opening / closing apps a few times does not seem to do anything useful.

In the end i restored the /Users/Username/Library/Application Support/Cura folder from my Time machine backup from before i installed 2.5 and got my profiles back.

Once again, after opening 2.5, the profiles are gone from 2.3.1.

Isn't there any way of having 2.3.1 and 2.5 living happily alongside each other?

I have always been using 2.3.1 alongside 15.04.6 which has never been a problem (15.04.6 still works fine btw.)

Any resolution to this? And as a side note, any ideas on what happened to the start.gcode? If i look at the old and new, it seems to do the same, more or less.

    Hi Per,

    I don't know what happened to your .gcode, but we are currently building different config folders for Cura versions. So from the next Beta (which will be public in a few weeks) you can run different versions beside each other and they won't have interacting configurations.

      • 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.
