Is it possible to edit/create .curaprofiles in a text editor?

Posted · Is it possible to edit/create .curaprofiles in a text editor?

I'm on Mac. I have tried Atom, Sublime Text, TextEdit... 

 

If I make any change to an exported curaprofile, then the re-import fails. 

I get "Errno 22, invalid argument"

Is there any special encoding or line ending or something that gets messed up? 

Thanks for any pointers!

    Thanks. Very useful @nallath

    I can confirm that I can now modify the profiles!

    Howto modify a .curaprofile

     

    • Open the .curaprofile as a zip archive
    • modify the files
    • re-compress the files
    • ONE WAY: a bit convoluted way to do this with no 3rd party software
      • rename the profile to `profile.zip` instead of `profile.curaprofile`
      • extract the files
      • edit them
      • re-compress into a new .zip archive
      • rename to .curaprofile again. 
      • done
    • ANOTHER WAY: simpler, but you need to install the open source and cross platform B1 Free Archiver
      • Open the .curaprofile archive with B1 (no renaming necessary)
      • Double click on the file you wanna edit
      • it will open in your default text editor
      • make you changes and save
      • the program will ask you if you want to save the changes
      • done. (B1 will re-compress the archive in the background)
