In the latest version 5.2.1 I have noticed that when you hover of a tool function in the Print Settings that the graphics in the popups have been removed and ONLY the text shows. I found that the graphics where very helpful to explain what the text means. Why was this removed? Can it be re-instated.


I know that I can go to the website for "Print Settings in Cura Support" and this shows them, but it is more convenient to view from within CURA when adjusting settings. This is especially true for newbies (like me) who have difficulty in remembering what each setting does.

    Hey @WartyNZ,

    Could it be that you had the printscreen on the left before and now just the printscreen on the right? 


    It could be that you had the Settings Guide installed but it has been disabled, or unistalled somehow.
    If you click the gear icon in the marketplace you can see which plugins you have installed.
    If it's disabled you can enable it, and if it's missing you can install it. 

    Was this the answer you were looking for?

    Hi MariMakes

    Yes that was exactly the right answer. Thank you very much.


    It must have been removed when I upgraded from 5.2 to 5.2.1 as it was working with 5.2.  When I installed 5.2 the plugin came across from the previous version 5 (and from 4 to 5), so I would have expected it to transfer to 5.2.1.


    Anyway got it back.Again many thanks.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
