Does Cura update detect and keep existing settings?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Does Cura update detect and keep existing settings?

I have a Creality S1 Pro and have set up all my profiles for various materials which I have exported and backed up. But if I upgrade to the new Beta version does it reset my printer and materials to default or does it maintain the current settings and plugins?

    When installing a new version of Cura, Cura makes a copy of the current configuration and updates that copy to work with the new version. So the previous version configuration will be left untouched.


    In previous versions of Cura for Windows, the installer would ask you if you wanted to remove all data from Cura. This would remove the old configuration so you would start with a blank slate. This removing of old data seems to have been removed from the installer.
