    I have not made up my mind yet, Thou Cura is used the most.

    Each slicer has it's own features that I find come in handy so I have them All.
    Order in which I use slicers
    Cura 15.04.6 ; easiest to operate
    Cura 2.7 ; Different layer Height in single Model
    Meshmixer ; Manual placing of supports
    Slic3r
    ..........Ect

    never heard of ideamaker, have to have a look.

    Glad it's not just me, I don't think the latest cura is particularly user friendly.

    I did some testing using idealMaker, was testing for another forum user model was a tube with 8 support ears.

    Holder_Lower.stl

    When sliced the ears are detached from the model, could not determine how to slice with idealMaker so the ears were connected.

    Slicing works in Cura. Would still like to determine what setting would be needed in IdealMaker to correctly slice the model.
