If you’ve used CellProfiler 2.1 or 2.2 in Test Mode, you’re probably familiar with the slider- it shows where you are in the pipeline (aka what steps have finished processing) and lets you jump to a new module.
As we design the UI for CP 3.0, there’s a concern that the slider is clunky and/or confusing, so right now the module you’re on (aka how far you’ve processed up to) is designated with a grey shaded box.
We’re concerned that may be too subtle, so one thing we’ve considered is adding a outline box to make it more obvious how far the processing has gotten.
We could also grey out modules that have previously run, either as background or the main text.
For either option though, we’ll need a way to move easily to a different part of the pipeline; one current thought would be to add the ability to ‘Jump Here’ when you right click (or Ctrl/Cmd+click) on a module.
We want your thoughts though! Which of these do you think would be intuitive to use? Is there a good idea we haven’t thought of yet? Please let us know and we’ll add it to the poll!
- Return to the slider
- Grey shading + right click to jump
