Cura updates delete custom profiles


Recommended Posts

Posted · Cura updates delete custom profiles

Hi, I've searched for this on the forums but didn't see an answer. For what seems likes over 6 months whenever I update Cura it seems to remove all my custom profiles expect 1 profile that I deleted ages ago that keep re-appearing. Any ideas? Or is deleting custom profiles normal? Thanks.

    OMG this.

     

    I've wasted a fair amount of filament do to settings I'd forgotten I'd tweaked being reset. I made another thread about it, at least this one has one reply. :-)

     

    I'm anxious if anyone knows how to get all that back.

    The update didn't change my settings. I wonder if it is OS specific. I'm running W10 on a lenovo thinkpad.

     

    I also allowed it to uninstall the previous version.

     

    My extensions are also still present, though I have no idea if they work (I've never actually used them :| )

    I allowed uninstallation as well. I went in more detail in the other thread....

    When installing 3.2, I got an error about the config file, and CURA wouldn't run until I let it wipe out configurations. Is there an easy way to get all that back?

     

    I did find a saved project file from fairly recently, and that brought in many settings (filaments definitions and all) but that seems tied to the machine.

     

    Kinda a vague question, but any help would be appreciated - importing the few good settings from 3.1 would be awesome.  Thanks!

     

    As a note, you might try loading an old project to get a possible snapshot of your settings at the time.

    Thanks for the help. I'm on OSX, I've cleared my application data settings folder which was full of older cura versions, which might have been causing a conflict. I will have to wait for the next update to see.

    Or you post the logs in combination with the profiles. In most cases we can fix them manually.
