Changing Metadata type in the Metadata module


I was having some issues with changing the metadata type in the Metadata module from text to integer. Upon selecting integer, the selection automatically resets back to text.

In its current state when the metadata is organized by text, my Z-stacks are being organized and analyzed from slices 0, 1, 11, 12, … , 19, 2, 20, 21. Other then changing the z-stack value to integer, which is currently unavailable, is there any other way of organizing my z-stack in sequential order.

Thanks for all the help.


Hi Jen,

Unfortunately, you have uncovered a bug. The good news is that we have fixed it already but the bad news is that you will have to install a new “trunk build” version to get this to work until our next release (which won’t be anytime soon i suspect):
Please read the caveats on that page.
