Ultimaker Cura | a new interface


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Cura | a new interface

The new interface just reduces the useable workspace and having to move around much more just to see what is happening. Glad to hear of the Sidebar GUI plugin.  Have installed it and happy to have the workspace again.

    Another feedback is to have the list of Print settings (windows/drop down) flexible so you can enlarge it.  A expend all settings button as well.   

    As I can't remember what the settings are called, I normally do show all settings and just accept that I have to scroll up and down a lot.

    I feel it would become a support nightmare. Many reports don’t even spell “Cura” properly, let alone the version number. Having daily builds only complicates that.

    For high speed user like me it's very annoying that panes, drop lists and every other ui item fades in and out. It blocks the speed of my workflow. Lucky i'am able to turn this off in Windows and my custom rom of Android. However i notice some ui elements in Cura 4.0, like the print settings, are still performing an fade like behavior. Is this a feature or just a slow ui?

    ..."I also notice that the tooltips on the move/resize etc. left hand icons are gone"...

     

    Is there any way to get them back? I am new to cura, coming from prusa slicer and it's very confusing to me as to what these tools do. They seem to have tons of options which makes it difficult for me to remember which one does which, especially if I add to the "adjustment tools" with tools from the marketplace. Please help with this issue, thank you.

    This is a thread of over a year old. There are tooltips in Cura which tell you what a certain feature does. In the marketplace is also a settings guide plugin which can help you with other settings. Good luck!

    Either downgrade to version 4.6, or wait patiently for version 4.9. It has been fixed, but the fix has not yet been published in an official release.
