Cura crashing in second display

Posted · Cura crashing in second display

So I had my Cura working on my second display for a long time. Recently I had to do a clean windows install on my PC and used the appdata roaming files to save my settings. It worked well, my settings are there but I can no longer use Cura on my second display without it crashing.

 

It started off as a complete white screen bug that I fixed by disconnecting the second monitor and unchecking "restore window position on start". I can now place Cura on the second display, load the model, modify the settings and even slice but as soon as I right click on the model, the software crashes.

 

It works perfectly fine on the first display.

 

Any idea how to fix these crashes without losing all my settings?

We really need a one file export for all our settings.

    It sounds like your clean install uses a different GPU driver that somehow interferes with the GUI framework that Cura uses.

    I fail to see how that would help you.

     

    Instead of a single file, you have to backup a single folder.

     

    If you want a single file, you can Save a project and load that back into Cura after you have reset it. That restores the entire state of your Cura settings.

      • 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
