Hello.  I'm having a frustrating issue.  I've been running on ver 4.13 for a couple of years now, using a plugin for my Dremel 3D45 printer.  I have several fine tuned and tweaked profiles for different print types that I've perfected.  Today I decided to clean up my Mac hard drive and I deleted an old Cura version.  For some reason when I went to open the 4.13 version it was treating me like a brand new user and didn't have my Dremel plugin or any of my saved profiles.  I've re-installed Dremel plugin and I've located my old profiles on my hard drive, but they're .cfg files, not .curaprofile fles so I can't import them.. how can I re-add them to my running instance of Cura?  Thanks.

    This can be tedious but it should be doable.  Start by using the "Help | Show Configuration Folder" command in your new Cura version.  That will show you where those files need to go.  Copy and paste them from the configuration folders of the older version into the equivalent folders of the new Cura version.  They should show up when you re-start Cura.
