Instrument settings - objective database entry not properly applied?
I created a new entry in the objective database (in the Instrument section of data manager).
When I load a dataset and select the saved objective setting from the database, it loads the info (mag, NA, immersion). So far so good:
As soon as I click "Apply" or anywhere else either in the Instrument tab in the software (like drag the image window), the objective NA, immersion and magnification revert to some other value:
it seems that the Instrument tab is not designed to enter that information for the current dataset. If I go to Summary, and select the objective again, seemingly nothing happens (objective name is correct, but the parameters did not update):
After I click Apply, all is well, and the NA and immersion and mag are applied.
HOWEVER, if I selected the objective in the "Instruments' tab, and then go to the "summary tab", I see the correct objective name listed, but the parameters (NA, immersion, ) did not update. If I click "Apply", nothing changes, the wrong/old parameters are still in there. The "Apply " button in Summary tab only updates the info if the objective is selected in the scroll-down list.
after clicking "Apply":
Three short questions:
1) is the Objective database behavior in the Instruments tab how it should be? I expected to be able to select an objective and apply its properties to the dataset from there.
2) The list of objectives in the Instruments tab is sorted alphabetically, it seems, while the list of the same objectives in the Summary tab is sorted in some other manner (maybe latest entries at the bottom). it is somewhat irritating to have it this way. Can we please have the lists sorted the same way?
3) Would it be possible to have the objective properties loaded/applied as soon as the objective is selected? There are many objectives in the database that just have a general type, so it takes one extra click to see if the HC Plan Apo si a 10x, or a 40x, or something else.
