Cura Settings not coming every time...

Can my custom settings be kept the same every time Cura is started? Is there a way to handle this without making a backup?

    Thanks for your message. I have implemented your suggestion now. If these settings appear every time I open Cura, the problem is solved.

    No they don't appear every time you open Cura, but you can just select your saved profile. There is no way to auto load a specific profile on startup. But it is just a click to select the needed profile.

    A hack/workaround could be to use a saved project instead of profiles and use a saved project to open Cura. Then you have all the preconfigured settings at startup. Just remove the saved object and add a new one.

    If the option with the saved project works for you, then you are also a little bit more on the safe side during Cura updates. It can happen that a custom profile stops working after an update and then you have to look manually in the profile file why it is not working.

     

    Personally I use only saved projects and when I have to print something new, then I just choose a project of a previous saved print job and replace the model. 

     

    But there are also a lot of users with custom profiles, it is just a personal preference.

    I don't understand the question. If you change a setting value and restart Cura, the setting value should still be what you changed it to. If it isn't then something is going wrong.

    For example, I used cura today and my settings are correct. However, when I open Cura on the second day, I see that the default values have arrived. In other words, the problem is that the default settings come only when you start using cura again. This requires me to reopen Cura, which has hundreds of settings, every time by returning from backup.

    As ahoeben wrote in his reply, when you change some settings, then quit Cura and reopen it, the settings should still be the same as before the start. 

     

    If not you should check if the configuration folder is writeable for you. Maybe that's the problem.

    Can you not just add a save settings button? obviously the settings we put in are the settings we want to use. there are quite a few changes I have been making and it's a pain to have to go back and change them again just because I shut my PC down. Then to start a new project on default settings and everything is wrong.

     

    Thanks

    The settings should save automatically. A "save settings" button would use the exact same code as automatic saving, excapt it would be triggered manually (in addition to it happening automatically). So, logically, if automatic saving does not work for you, then neither would manual saving.

     

    If automatic saving does not work for you, then that is a bug and we have to get to the bottom of it.

     

    Have you tried making a profile out of the settings you changed?
