Can you try "Activating" one of the other printers using the Activate button? Do the other printers have "Machine Setting" button once they are activated?

Yes, i can ativate printer. But i have also nothing in settings.
For example if i add and activate Ultimaker Original - i have these menus (Cura 4.5)1450931574_.thumb.png.0fc6c82c8691aca0c8166a5907ee0e57.png

Seeing the same issue.  The only printer options are Ultimaker printers

Hi mnswamp did you resolve not being able to add a custom printer I’ve downloaded version 4.6.0. And 4.6.1 and again only Ultimaker printers in the add printer list no option to add custom printer or the fff one as per the user guide ?

The display properties of Cura must be intended for people with really, really big monitors.  The scroll bars for that form are hidden/nearly invisible.  If you get right on the right edge of the window with the Ultimaker printers in it, you can eventually get the scroll bars to appear.  I'll try to get a screen grab off my other machine and post up.  

Once you get the scroll bars to move, all the printers show up like you would expect.
