Wow, thanks so much I would have never found that. I never paid much attention to the experimental section so I'm amazed that it would be set, maybe it was the default? So originally I had supports on so why do you think that this experimental option would take presidence over supports? Thanks again!!!!
The default is "off". Every once in a while though it gets turned on. If you open a 3mf file and it is set to "on", and you don't notice then it can become your default.
Another setting that can cause unwanted effects that are hard to figure out is "Remove All Holes". It has it's uses to fix some specific model problems, but not very often.

Not by itself though.
It can happen if you load a project-file from someone else. That can change your settings to match theirs.
"If you open a 3mf file and it is set to "on"..."
That's what I was trying to infer. I guess I missed it.
In the Experimental section of the settings there is "Make Overhangs Printable". You need to de-select that. It adds a chamfer to horizontal surfaces (when possible) so they don't require support. I haven't seen many models that need it.
