Setting in one profile messing up setting in another profile

Posted · Setting in one profile messing up setting in another profile

Hi,

 

For my 3D slicing I use only Cura.

 

I have noticed that if I create a couple of profiles and I make changes to profile A and then go to profile B I mess up profile B with changes intended for profile A only.

 

Is there a way to stop this? It's completely unexpected as I don't grasp the logic in this approach and I have lost more than 1 good profiles so far. People forget to save prior to changing profiles so you will either lose the settings in the current profile or mess up the one you are activating.

 

Or is there something I completely miss?

    You have "unsaved" changes and "saved" changes. By default, if you have unsaved changes and switch a profile, Cura asks you what you want to do; Either keep the unsaved changes or discard them.

     

    There is also a preference that you can set where it won't ask you every time you do this, but pick either of these two options. I assume that that is what you set. If you want to change that behavior, you can find it in preferences (general page)

    Hi,

     

    Maybe I don't understand it yet but if you forget to save the changes to the current profile and switch to another you have lost the changes for the current profile, you then only have the option to save the changes to the profile you want to enter. 

     

    I expect to get the option to save the changes to the profile the changes were made in, the option to save it to the profile to be opened for me is of no use. I want to do that manually, if needed, as that gives more control over the changes.

     

    I have not discovered the logic in this and thus I still mess up more than once switching profiles which is a real pain. 

     

    I have for example printed a couple of plastic bearings to tune the horizontal expansion on the in and outside. Now I have lost the values for that and can start over again.

    I really don't understand what you mean, sorry.

     

    Could you write out, step by step, what you do. Then write out, step by step what happens and then (step by step) what you think should happen.
