Material/Print Quality settings grouping

Mon Jan 06, 2020 12:33 pm

In the UI there are dropdowns to configure both Material and Print Quality.
It is not straightforward for the user to know what settings are being saved/configured when selecting each of the dropdowns, and worse which settings are being saved by each.

Descriptions:
Material: Automatically configure temperature and extrusion settings for the selected material.
Print Quality: Automatically configure layer height, infill percentages and other related settings for the selected quality level.

This request is for a better UI presentation of what settings are being configured/saved by Material/Print Quality.
The change could be in the form of:
[*] grouping of tabs under Material and another grouping under Print Quality (settings not saved by either could be ungrouped tabs)
[*] annotation by color or asterix (double asterix) to indicate which settings are saved by Material (Print Quality)

Thanks for listening! Great product!

Great feature request! Another user took the time to describe how this can be done right now. viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5977&p=25950#p25947

I'll document this a request for more of a polished solution, rather the workaround mentioned above.
