Pause-after-each-cycle checkbox



Sometimes, specially with small images, the pipeline runs so fast that
is difficult to use the pause button. Easy but really useful idea: what about adding a checkbox with sthg like: pause after each cycle ?




Good idea! It’s on our to-do list.

We are also planning, at some point, to add another feature that is somewhat related - allowing you to pause at a certain point in the cycle, see the results of the module, and if you don’t like the results, repeat the module after changing settings, until you are happy with the results. That way, you don’t have to run the entire pipeline many times when you are playing around with settings for a module that is partway through.

Will post here when either of those is completed.



There is a new module called PauseCellProfiler under the File Processing category in version 1.0.4884 and beyond. This is a simple module which allows the user to pause processing and inspect images by inserting this module anywhere in a pipeline.

As Anne mentioned, we plan to add more sophisticated interaction features later (changing settings, etc.)

Hope this helps!
