Posted · Ultimaker Cura backup restore at fresh installation

Hello!

I have faced with issue second time and looks like it can be repeated - after fresh installation of last Cura on blank system (new PC), there is no option for restore backup at start - you need select at least one printer (even after sigh in dialog), only then, its possible to go backup restore plugin and select backup.

 

But then I get second problem - Cura closing, but when I start Cura again (normal restore procedure), there is again "Add a printer" dialog, and there is no way to ignore that. After selecting some new printer, if I go to machines list - there will be my machines from backup + added one. If I delete last, Cura working normally with my settings, and no "Add a printer" window at next time. But if I try to restore same backup again - Add a printer dialog appear back..

 

For example here you can see that I was signed-in, but Add a printer appears

even if I have printers from backup:

    Could you report this issue on github?

    I think this is caused because the preferences arent correctly restored. So it seems to still be loading the old preferences, which is pointing to a machine that doesn't exist anymore. Since it can't load anything, the "add a printer" dialog pops up.

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
