Every time I update Cura I lose all settings


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Every time I update Cura I lose all settings

Hello everyone!

Every time I install a new version of Cura, all my settings are lots. All profiles, all machines, all view settings.

How can I fix this?

PS: I'm working on a Mac

 

EDIT: some more info.

When I updated to v3.3, just now, it wouldn't start at first. I had to delete ~/Library/Application Support/cura, and then it started normally.

I copied the old contents back into this folder, but Cura still wouldn't load my old settings.

I've never had to delete this folder before, but I've lost all my settings absolutely every time I've downloaded a new version of Cura.

    For some unknown reason, Cura has shown this wretched behavior for years.
    Why they can't copy over the settings that old and new versions have in common is beyond me, and I've been a SW developer.

    Hey @harald25, we have just released a new build yesterday with some fixes that addresses your issue.

    You can get it from here. https://ultimaker.com/en/products/ultimaker-cura-software

    Before you install and launch Cura 3.3.1, can you please make sure to delete the 3.3 folder in your cura configuration folder? \Application Support\cura\

     

    Let me know if this helps.
