Having problems selecting materials in Cura 5.2.2.


The screenshot below, shows that I'm trying to select Ultimaker, PETG, Fluorescent  Yellow. 


But won't let me go past PETG (to select colour variant). Is this a CURA issue or plugin?




I'll try rolling back CURA....




Manage to activate materials from here:

    Check under "Kimya" that material isn't a UltiMaker material 😃


    Thanks for the reply. No, this was just an example. When I "hover over" say PETG, nothing happens. Normally another menu? pops up and then you can select various colours, but this isn't happening....so can't select PETG > RED, PETG > GREEN etc...

    It looks like you are using my Sidebar GUI plugin. There seems to be a problem with the latest version of that plugin that causes this issue:



    You can download the previous version of the plugin - which AFAIK does not have this bug - here:


    Download the .curapackage and drop it onto the Cura buildplate as if you were opening a model.

      • 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.
