Fiji/ImageJ Overlay Option dialog box question


I have a question regarding the Overlay Options dialog box in Fiji/ImageJ. I am using (Fiji Is Just) ImageJ 2.1.0/1.53f23; Java 1.8.0_172 [64-bit]; Windows 10 10.0

I am trying to figure out what the “Apply” checkbox does. The documentation didn’t mention the “Apply” checkbox.

Overlay Options

I cannot find any reference of this dialog box in the manual. Can someone help?

Thank you very much!

Hi @ttong2046,

I don’t think there is any documentation on this, but “Apply” means that the options are applied to the current overlay. If you don’t check “Apply”, the settings will only be applied to new overlays that you create.

For example this:

Will set the current overlay to red stroke.
