Cura 3.3.1 - Unable to add custom materials

Recommended Posts

Today I tried to add a new material in Cura (via Preferences, Configure Cura, Materials).

I duplicated the Generic CPE and then started to change some settings:

Display Name: PETG

Brand: BrandXYZ

Material Type: PETG (doesn't exist in Cura)

and then, as soon as I leave the last field field, the material has gone, without any warning or message. Another material (ABS) is then selected. At first I didn't notice that this happened so I entered several other values, but I was altering the wrong material! Unfortunately there is no Cancel-button on this form so I wasn't really happy. 

So please UM/Cura-team,

- add a Cancel-button to this form

- support unknown materials OR give a clear warning before throwing away my entered data OR make the Material Type-box a selection box.

Thanks!
