problems with profiles in ultimaker cura 4.7

Recommended Posts

Posted · problems with profiles in ultimaker cura 4.7
I import a profile and Cura tells me that it has been importing successfully, but now I don't see it anywhere, it is not in the dropdown of custom profiles. It has happened to me with two. One was a .gcode and one was a .curaprofile. To test if it was the Cura that was wrong, I uninstalled it and installed the Cura 4.5, but it still does the same to me. Is there something I'm doing wrong? Any suggestions please?

    I had similar issues. 

    In my case, I learned that if the selected Material profile is "Not Supported" by Cura (the material field in the Prepare view goes orange), then Cura changes the profile options to a default set, hiding all of the custom profiles.  For me, it was enough to change the material type from PLA+ to PLA in my custom material profiles or just to select one of the generic material profiles, and all my print profiles were visible again.

    Your issue may differ, of course, but I hope this helps...

    Even after restarting CURA, all my settings, gone
