Migrating from v3.4.1 to 3.6


Can someone confirm that "Material -> Diameter" setting is now missing in 3.6 compared to 3.4.1


Now in the machine settings?

    It always *was* there (photo from v3.4.1)



    ...and also in Material->Diameter



    ...so I could "override" the machine settings using Material->Diameter


    ....but Material->Diameter seems to have gone on 3.6 so you *have* to set it in machine settings..


    ....at least I believe that's the case but would like sanity confirmation because the popup help in 3.6 seems to imply it can still be overriden:

    You can sort-of get the setting back in the sidebar with the Printer Settings plugin from the Marketplace, though it will be in another category.

    I tried using the printer settings plugin for this but the diameter setting is locked.

    But I think this works, go to machine settings and change the gcode flavor to marlin, then click the extruder tab and modify the diameter, then go back and change the gcode flavor back (to UM2 in my case) 

    Even though the editable diameter box under the extruder tab disappears the diameter you enter under the marlin setting will carry over and be the new default for all materials.
