CellProfiler 3.0 release "RemoveObjectsBySize" module missing

#1

I have been testing out the new CP3.0 software release version this week. Did the RemoveObjectsBySize module get pulled from the final release because it was in the RC5 and RC6 versions? Is there equivalent functionality in another module?


#2

Yes, because it was redundant with FilterObjects. You can use FilterObjects instead. Thanks!


#3

I did a little more testing and found that MeasureObjectsSizeShape and FilterObjects works as a suitable substitute for RemoveObjectsBySize. Although filtering by long axis length yielded 1 object for all values that I tried. The area metric (slight misnomer with volumetric datasets) does work to filter small nuclei objects which is what I was looking for.
