Adding settings bundle permanently/locally

To print TPU I found myself a config bundle that I import every time I want to print that material. It sets up print settings, filament, and even changes the printer type. It all works beautifully. Only problem is that I have to import this bundle every time I want to print TPU. Is there a way of somehow making those settings permanently/locally available rather than having to import every time?

Thanks for your help.

Save your standard settings as a .3mf (save project as), save your TPU settings as another, then 'open' the 'project' settings you require before loading your part.

Cheerio,

Load your 3mf profile in so that they are showing in the 3 profile dropdowns.  Then use the disc icon for Save current printer settings (theres a tooltip when you however over the icon for Save current printer/filament/printer settings). 
You have to save them individually, one for each profile you want to add to your system.  When saving they must be given a unique non system name but once saved they are permanently installed on your system. 
You wont need to load them in again and can just select them from the dropdowns.
