UM2 forgetting retraction settings

Hi,

Is it just me or do others have the same problem? I have set different retraction settings (maintenance -> advanced -> retraction settings) but when I turn the printer off and on again, there are set to the default (firmware 14.01.02). Is there a way to save them permanently or is this a bug?

    Yeah, it's a bug where they do not stick, forgot about fixing it (quite a trival fix).

    A workaround is opening and closing the LED settings, this saves all settings.

    There's a bug in LED settings too..

    If I have brightness set to other than 100%, when I power on, it comes on at 100%. When I go to LED settings, it immediately changes to whatever the stored value was. When I then go out of LED settings then any changes I make don't stick and it changes again - back to the previous stored value, not the new one. Something like that anyway - it's hard to keep track of: but it definitely powers on at the wrong value. Changes instantly when going into LED settings, and then changes to something else when you exit the settings.

    This doesn't work either. After I power cycle the machine, the retraction settings are back to default.

    I could not get the proposed LED setting workaround from Daid to work either for saving settings.

    First load the PLA setting. Then go CUSTOMIZE. Then change the values, then SAVE, then select PLA. This last step, if not done, means your save step didn't complete.

    You probably need the bleeding edge latest firmware for all this to work.

    For me it's flaky - if you create more than two custom profiles there is a bug also. I'm not sure how to delete them. But it usually works even without me doing anything with the LED settings.
