Support Problem when slicing

So I’m new and I might be missing something obvious. 
printer weedo tina2
when I open my Stl file, a guy with a trench coat, and I put in the supports, using custom support plug in. Everything works perfectly. When I slice it to gcode and go to print the supports aren’t there, just little nubs where the support should be. 
I took the gcode file and reopened it in Cura and the printer printed it how it looked. 
so somewhere in the slicing the stl to gcode it messes with the supports and I don’t know why.

    I was able to “fix” it. I uninstalled Cura and reinstalled it. Then just downloaded one extension. And now it seems to work.

    Post a project file as well.  With the model loaded and the supports and settings the way you want - use the File / Save Project command to create a 3mf project file and post it here.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (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.
