Hi, this is not completely a bug, but rather an likely-unwanted behavior.
1. I double-click on a .lif file to open its contents
First comment: it opens only the first z-stack from the project, rather than the Chooser that appears if you do a drag and drop on an open Icy instance
2. I play around in icy, then I double-click on another .lif file to open the contents in Icy
It shows: “Icy is already opened, do you want to open it anyways?” and if Yes, opens a second instance of Icy, rather than open the file in the current instance.
Again, only the first record of the .lif project is opened, instead of displaying the Chooser.
PS: sorry, this is in fact 2 bugs in one.Stephane Dallongeville June 24, 2019 at 3:29 pm
Thanks for your reports !
1) Sometime we want to open directly images without annoying user with an extra dialog. Command line operation (as this is the case here) often want automatic / quick processing but here if we don’t set extra process (plugin / script…) i guess we can still show the series selector.
2) To be honest we never though about using Icy as default image reader as Icy is quite heavy and take a very long time to launch. In fact it happens often that users want to open severals instance of Icy, much more than just open a new image in Icy just by double clicking it (in which case we just drag & drop it over Icy). Not sure we can find an easy solution for this one…
Thanks again for your feedback in general and taking time to report your findings 🙂
