Cura simply not working after profile creation

@lfei it does appear to be fixed now. If I notice anything funny I'll report it but so far so good!

@lfei and other Ultimaker people, there still seems to be a problem with the way Cura's saves/retrieves profiles. Not as bad as it used to be before 4.3.1 but it's still not working right. When you update a profile with current settings/overrides it saves most of the settings most of the time but it's not reliable as some settings may have changed randomly when that profile is loaded again. I still have to check them all the time because every now and again some value changes all by itself.

Tonight I had to interrupt my normal routine and print a small part in PLA using the recommended settings, and when I finished that job and continued with my "normal" work, I loaded my workhorse ASA profile. However suddenly it was unrecognizable. The following values were not as I saved them (I selected "discard" in case you were wondering.)

  • Layer height
  • Wall line count
  • Outer before inner walls
  • Z seam alignment
  • Infill density
  • Initial printing temperature
  • Final printing temperature
  • Retraction distance
  • Infill speed
  • Outer wall speed
  • Inner wall speed
  • Combing mode
  • Retract before outer wall
  • Enable print cooling
  • Build plate adhesion type
  • Dual Extrusion (all the settings there were different)
  • Slicing tolerance
  • Infill optimization
  • Enable coasting

NONE of the above settings were as I had saved them even though I've updated the profile bit by bit over the past few weeks to get it perfect. Now I have to re-do it all over again, just to re-do it again at some unexpected point in future.

 

Guys, my UM3 is not a toy, I'm trying to run a business here and can't afford to re-do stuff over and over again in Cura. Can you please help and sort this out, or if I'm misunderstanding the concept of profiles please explain it to me. The way I see it, if the grey star appears after I make a change, I have changed the profile and if I'm satisfied with my change I can update the profile and the star disappears, and next time I load the profile my settings will be back. If my understanding is correct, then I'm sad to say there is a bug and it's costing me time and sometimes filament if these changes happen and I don't catch them in time.
