I'm finding this confusing too. I'm using UM2+ and Cura 2.6.1. I'm printing with Taulman Nylon Bridge.
Previously everything was working fine - I created a new material profile in the material.txt file and imported it to my machine.
Now, on my SD card and my machine and in my Cura profile I have the temperature set to 247 but whenever I print the temp is 245 and I have to tune it. I don't understand what information sits on the machine and what is now controlled by Cura.
Thanks for help,
Only a few settings are material "only" (Bed temperature, standy temp, etc). The rest of them depend on both the material and the quality that you are trying to print at.
This means that we can't change this.
As for layer height, this can never be set in a material, as all extruders must have the same layer height.
