Some Materials Print Settings not all changing

When I switch between materials the print temp, build plate temp, standby temp all change to what is set in the material print settings.   But the retraction distance and speed are not changed?  Not sure about fan speed.   Is this correct?  Shouldn't the print values be replaced by the material print values when I change materials?  If not why even have these values in material?

    This depends on what is set in the quality profiles for your printer. Anything defined in a quality profile or in the custom settings panel overrides what is set in the Materials preferences.

    That would make sense but something still seams amiss.  My profile is set to Retraction distance is 4mm.  I have two materials I am switching between for testing, one is set to 2mm the other is 3mm.   When I change to either material it changed it to 10mm...  I don't see where its getting the 10mm from.

    Ok, figured it out, I am guessing something got messed up after one of the upgrades.  Was running 4.0 until about 3 weeks ago, upgraded to 4.5 back then.  Upgraded to 4.6 yesterday.   Profiles must have gotten messed up during all of this.  I changed profile setting to 99mm and resaved the profile, than changed it back to 4mm and saved again and it started working.  Now the value changes when I switch profile or material.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
