Can't select PETG when using a 0.6mm nozzle

I'm running three Mini+'s and switched one to a 0.6mm nozzle to test the quality and speed when printing my PETG parts. Everything is going smoothly until I try to select PETG as my filament to slice my models. There are absolutely no PETG options to be found unless I switch my printer back to the pre-set that has 0.4mm nozzle. I can't make sense of this, there's no reason that PrusaSlicer should not directly support PETG when using 0.6mm nozzles. I must be missing something...

Re-run the configuration wizard in prusa slicer. Go to the Filaments section and make sure that when you select the 0.6mm printer profile in the left column, the filament profiles you're interested in  are selected in the right column. Filament profiles are different, for different nozzle sizes.

Use the 0.4mm nozzle settings and change this variable to 0.6mm:

After that, you have to change some other parameters, e.g. layer width, nozzle diameter etc... and save the profile under a new name.

RE: Can't select PETG when using a 0.6mm nozzle

This worked, thank you. Those whole 'setup wizard to change basic settings' thing is super unintuitive. PrusaSlicer clearly knows my 0.6mm nozzle isn't compatible with the 0.4mm PETG filament settings, that's why it removes them as an option. Why doesn't it just populate the 0.6mm settings in their place? I've been using prusa printers and prusaslicer almost exclusively for 5+ years now, 3D printing for over 10 years. If I can't intuitively figure this out or even find documentation via Prusa or Google, I'm not sure how a beginner is expected to do so.
