it would be nice to be able to collapse the bar to the right

That was added previous version. See the small "x" button next to the "Custom" toggle.

    The version of Sidebar GUI with an undockable sidebar has been released on the Marketplace for your undocking pleasure.

    Please help testing this development snapshot of Sidebar GUI which adds compatibility with Cura 4.11.

     

    You know the drill: download the file and drop it onto the buildvolume in Cura.

    Unfortunately, it does not look to function on my end with the 4.11 Beta. I also didn't see anything in the logs that indicated an issue with it loading.

    I hope I'm missing something simple, because this is the only plugin I look forward to with each Cura release :P

    +1 and my log also shows it being loaded.  Marketplace shows version 4.1.3 is installed (but the filename says "v7.0.0")?

    This is with the SidebarGUI loaded in 4.11 beta.

    That'll work.

    Now, one more thing.  If this was moveable/hideable then things would be almost perfect.

    It is collapsible. See the little down-arrow next to where it says "Compatibility mode".

    I never played with that.  I figured it had to do with the graphics mode.  OK, you're off the hook for now.  Thanks.

    Hello @ahoeben,

    Regarding the Sidebar GUI - I'm having the same problem with 4.12 beta that I had with 4.11.  The plugin is loaded according to the Marketplace but it isn't apparent in the Cura GUI.  I've uninstalled and re-installed it but it doesn't appear to be present.

    I may have mentioned this before, but because the plugin does a lot of in-place patching of QML, which can break horribly if the original QML has changed in a version upgrade, I have put in a mechanism in the plugin that it ALWAYS needs an update when a new version of Cura is released. ALWAYS. I'll have a link to a development snapshot here soon.

    Thank You.

    I understand I'm working with a Cura beta version but I've gotten used to the interface with the plugin active and I miss it when it's gone.

    You are so right @GregValiant, using Cura without the Sidebar plugin is like eating a burger without a patty 🙂

    Sorry for the delay, here's a development snapshot. Download the file, drop it onto the buildplate in Cura.

    Thank's a lot .. So much more user friendly than the standard interface, I don't understand why this is not the standard for Cura?

    It's a long story, so I won't bother people with it. We are looking into changes that we can make in the interface as it is now.
