Cura changes my preferences

Posted · Cura changes my preferences

Hello everyone,


I'm using UltiMaker-Cura-5.4.0-linux-modern.AppImage  under  Debian Linux,


My preferences file is



When cura was NOT open, I've changed the file


dialog_save_path = ~/Impressions_3D/Sifflets
dialog_load_path =



dialog_save_path = ~/Impressions_3D
dialog_load_path = ~/Impressions_3D



The change on dialog_save_path worked

But the other (on dialog_load_path) did not. 

On opening, Cura changes it everytime for a blank line.   Why??


Is there anyway to force Cura to keep my change(s) now and i the future ?

    Good idea: easy and hopefully working.


    Tried:  yes and no

    yes: my file stays the same --- no surprise, but the trick works.

    no:  still cura opens the ~/ directory instead of the ~/Impressions_3d as expected.
