How to add custom filament profile to Cura 1.5.0

I have some custom filament profiles that I use with Cura. I can save and load them manually by selecting the files from the Load/Save Profile dialog box just fine. However, the last loaded profile doesn't get reloaded when I first start Cura and also it doesn't show up in the Load Material Profile list. I think if I could find where that built-in material profile list is, perhaps I could add my file(s) to that and have it automatically load.

Is there any way to make Cura automatically load the last profile or add a custom profile to the built in profile list?

Also, in Cura, how can start/end.gcode file changes be made permanent? I commented out the extruder purge code in start.gcode to save wear and tear on the BuildTak sheet. I saved the changes, but after rebooting the PC, those changes are gone. Real PITA to have to re-configure things like this and the filament profile every time I restart Cura.

How can user changes be made permanent?

OK, it seems the start/end.gcode data is stored in the profile. So if I save the start.gcode changes then re-save the profile I can have those changes in the profile. But how can a user profile be automatically loaded at start up in Cura 1.5? It seems to restart with some generic PLA profile loaded and I need to remember to reload my own profile every time I restart Cura. The 1.4 version would reload the last profile as I recall.
