This is looking gooood!

With Dense support (both manual and automatic) I get some of the main support coming into contact with the model. Its much much worse doing it in the slicing profile.

Settings are:
3mm pillars
0 mm Horizontal offset
5mm Dense support
100% dense support infill

Please try if you modify the Horizontal Offset from 0 to some other values whether the result will change or not.

We would prefer using mouse clicking instead of scroll wheel to select the values to avoid mishandling.
About the other issues you mentioned, would you like to give us more information?

Save as button will only show under Simple Mode. Not Saved will only shown when Slice with unsaved templates option enabled under Preferences.

Per-layer, Per-group settings and Modifier settings are separate from main template according to different models. They will be saved together with .idea file. So if you enabled Save idea file these settings will be save in .idea file automatically.

1. Would be useful to had *.idea files thumbnails in windows explorer (and other platforms) ;)
2. Would be great if IdeaMaker wouldn't close itself while there is a uploading still going on.
3. I've got slicing issue: I used 8 bottom and 8 top solid fill layers (as lines) with 3 top and 3 bottom surfaces solid fill (as concentric) but I get 1st layer as lines and then 2 layers as concentric. At top it works right (5 as lines and 3 as concentric)
4. Align together command works not great. Just place my models out of the bed...
5. Would be useful to use Place On Platform for all models at all heights and put it to bed. As for now it works like with a Group of the models... I need to select every model and put in on the table.. =/

1. Tanks for your suggestions! This feature has been added into our developing list.
2. We will try to optimize this in futur versions.
3. Please check your Per-layer settings. Or if you'd like to share your .idea and .gcode files with us we can help check.
4. The Align together will ue the original position of the models when they were designed.
5. To carry out some operations for a group of models at one time will have an issue that the relative position for each model need to be kept the same as it was before the operation. So it's not possible to do a Z direction change at the same time for all models at one time.

6. A little convenience: you DO NOT need to select a model to Auto Ungroup it IF there is only ONE model on the table ;) m?

Please do the same for the Duplicate tool so that if there is only one model on the build plate, it automatically selects that model for duplication.

Thank you for updating the Duplicate function so that it fills in empty spots instead of placing parts outside the printable are. :D

Could a [fill the bed] button be added to the "Number of copies" dialog box that would calculate the largest array of duplicates that would fit in the printable area, create that many copies, and center that array in the printable area?
There is still the issue that the alignment of the duplication grid is based on the location of the original model. If the original part's location, doesn't align with the theoretical max-fit duplication grid, the duplicator will place copies outside the printable area. Usually this issue crops up when you are trying to duplicate an object in the default center placement that would fit best with with an even number of rows or columns. (see attachments)

Attached: duplicating 31 Benchys from center origin (places parts outside the printable area) and from an offset of X32 Y17.5 (centers parts on bed)
