Plugin "FigureJ" - how to specify filename when saving

Hello, using the Plugin FigureJ by @jerome.mutterer/@jerome
I experience the following issue: I don’t know how to specify a file name in the FigureJ saving dialogue. When choosing an existing folder/directory the file(s) will be saved with the same name of the directory (i.e. ~/test_folder/test_folder.figurej and so on).
I’m using FigureJ 1.36 with Fiji/ImageJ 1.53e, Java 1.8.0_172 (64 bit) on Ubuntu Linux 18.04)

When trying to save the file in the directory ~/test_folder with the name filename I get the message “file or directory not found”:

true

Is this a bug or am I overseeing something here?

Hi,
The behaviour you’ve first experienced is how it is supposed to work:
The FigureJ ‘save’ button opens a directory chooser dialog.
You need to specify an existing folder or create a new one and select it, and a *.figurej file is created using the same name as the selected folder. All raw data and accompanying files for this figure will also be saved in that folder.

Thank you for your response!

Ok, I guess this makes sense, since it’s always a bunch of files that belong to one “FigureJ image”. For someone using the plugin for the first time, it might still be confusing, though. Adding a info box or some sort of description might be very helpful for beginners.

Good idea, I’ll add a note the first time the save button is pressed. Thanks for the feedback.
