That did the trick!!! It appears this setting was not carried over (maybe not avaialble) on V4.0 when I upgrade to 4.2.1 and then 4.3.0. I've seen this question asked a few other places on different forums with no answer. I'll spread the news!
Thanks so much!
A Cura project file is a 3mf file and contains the model and the print settings.
Your description sounds like you want to load only the model, but not the settings from the file.
This behavior can be changed in the "Preferences" dialog.
