Multiple Cura instances dragging down performance, can this be stopped?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Multiple Cura instances dragging down performance, can this be stopped?

Occasionally when attempting to drag and drop STL's into Cura it decides to open each one individually. It also does this when selecting STL's in a folder even if I'm just moving them around, I guess it sometimes detects a poorly timed mouse click (or release and decides) that I wanted to open all of them in separate instances.

Predictably this causes the whole Cura application to grind to a halt and I have to manually kill these instances in Task Manager.

Is there anyway to prevent Cura from opening multiple instances like this?

    There is a "Use a single instance of Cura" checkbox on the General pane of the preferences.
