Posted · cant open STL files 3.6.0

I am totally new at this just installed it yesterday.. but seems to have problems.. when I ran it once things worked .. opened files seems ok I just added plugin for Auto Slicer, Auto Orientation, Backups, Repetier, Z offset (required restart of app)


after this I cant open any STL files, I downloaded new files, cant open I tried opening recent, nothing. slic3r will open them paint3d(windows free thing) opens them not cura


uninstalled all the plugins, no change.

uninstalled the whole app config files and all config files

still not working

Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17763.253]

    I came back to my computer like 2 hours later and the STL loaded things were there.. 


    this was not my experience the first time it loaded it worked just as expected.


    if I try to open another file it seems to just hang up and sit there as well..

    I am abandoning this software.. seems like a lot of people have issues and reading the support forums (trying everything I can to fix this problem I have) just isn't the right fit of users or developers for me.
