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.

    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.
