mac won't open stl in cura with double click

Posted · mac won't open stl in cura with double click

Hi, I'm new to this forum, I downloaded Cura 4.3.0, and all though i'm happy with the slicing i cannot open stl files directly on my mac when I doubleclick them. I tried to change through the info tag and change all to open with cura, but it still doesn't work. I use to work with repetier and I did not have that problem.
But this is a definitely better software, all though this glitch is so annoying.
Also the files do not get the cura logo.
Can you help?

kind regards

    Right-click any STL file and choose Get Info. On the info panel note the "Open with:" item halfway down – choose Cura, then click Change All button. Done.

    i did that, but usually the files get the extension image. but in this case they didn't. they open now, but teir aspect is still not a cura one... same as the gcode. why don't they get the cura logo? is that a plugin issue? I mean the gcode is generated by cura itself. here's a screenshot of the files stl, and gcode.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
