Hey there


As someone who likes to play around with his profiles every now and then I often encounter a problem. I would like to have seperate profiles for fast printing and slow (better quality) printing. The more or less only thing I would change for this is the printing speed.

Whenever I change settings like infill pattern which I would need to change it in both profiles. Having multiple profiles makes this impossible to me. I always have ti think about thich setting I have to adjust in other profiles as well so I end up using only one profile and just change the print speed before a print to whatever I need. For me this is a non ideal work flow.

My idea would be to link profiles. You would be able to to either create a copy as usual or create a linked copy. What that means is that it for the start it shares every setting. If I change the temperature in profile a it also changes it in profile b. You then can unlink certain settings which you want to have unique to that profile.

I know that this is a problem that is not existing to users who are that experienced that their settings are completely dialed in but I assume that isn't the case for everyone.
