Perhaps I'm not using the auto configure properties right... or maybe you just have to edit the profile xml instead of use the GUI.. but for me, when I change the settings for fast/medium/slow, they don't stick, instead it just switches back to what it was as I toggle back and forth between the settings. Sort of annoying... or maybe I just don't understand the intent.
It does appear at least when you export the profile on MAC OS that the material/auto configure stuff didn't disappear, so I think they at least squashed that bug.
But yeah, I checked the xml and I see different layer settings, temperature settings etc for the different materials and qualities but nothing changes in the GUI when I select them... or well, sometimes it does and most of the time it doesn't. in other words, sort of a big let down... At least on OS X.
Example: go to temperature tab, xml has different hot bed temperatures for different materials. Switch between PLA, ABS, Nylon etc, watch hotbed temperature not changing when you select the different materials.
Also, assuming they fix it and that auto configure starts working, it would be nice if you could put different costs with the different materials.. I tried changing that but it always stayed the same so I don't know if it's the same as the other bug where selecting the auto configure doesn't change things or if material just isn't one of the choices for auto configure.
