I just wanted to say that they have fixed my purge issue, and I am waiting for the Alpha to come out to test it. Can't wait, as the rest I have seen has fixed everything I had problems with in the previous versions.
Here is hoping!
I have a Robo. Where did the option for Automatic Print Leveling go?You are probably getting confused about the different kinds of print leveling that are available. Your Robo has hardware leveling which allows it to probe the height of the bed before each print. Other printers don't have this feature, so for them MatterControl has the option to use automatic software leveling. This is where you measure the height of 3 points on the bed using the piece of paper. If you try to use both types of leveling at once, they will conflict with each other and cause problems. This is why the option for software leveling is now hidden if you have a Robo or any other type of printer with a probe. For more information on the various types of leveling, and how to configure them, look at our article on Automatic Print Leveling.
I updated this week, started designing a thing and found that I cannot subtract objects after I have saved shut down and started back up. I can do simple subs but not the complex ones that "worked just fine" before I saved and shut down. Previous version had the same problem. I like this software, I was thinking about getting it but not if its going to be so buggy. I have a day in this design and now I cant do anything to it, even after having multiple project files to keep things simple. Window 10 64 I7 32gig 3tb 2080.... So frustrating.. Yes, I even lifted off the grid because most of the time subtract leaves parts if it is sitting on the surface. I mostly just want to add to the list of confirmed "subtract does not work properly" cases.
You can find the latest release notes here. You can also go to help in MC and find them there.
There were not any changes that should have affected your profile, not sure how that happened. We will dig into what might have gone wrong there. Thanks for the heads up.
Below is a copy of the what's new:

@hamprinter Thank you! I just figured that out myself last night as well, came here to post that was the cause. Hmm. Feel like that setting maybe should be grouped with the speeds, but thats a UI question.
OK, this appears to be a problem with the baud rate after all. I was able to work around it, once I discovered that even thoughg it did not connect, I could manually set the baud rate in the printer profile (in this case to 115K).
Now it connects.
I have not tried MC in Ubuntu yet. But I can offer you a few thoughts.
If you run the following command, does it display the group was added?;
Also found this post about modemmanager causing problems with dialout.
Other thoughts would be; try loading the software as root/adding user to root group/allowing login as root
(I understand security implications but just thoughts for troubleshooting)
I like MC for the mesh modifications; that are easily done inside it, but for any sequential printing or complex slicing, I use Prusa Slicer or Cura.
I would try and find a "preset" for your printer for either of the two mentioned programs.
Does your printer use bed leveling through MC?
