Description (last modified by bdezonia)

In IJ1 the Edit >> Selection >> Specify command interactively draws a new rectangle or oval roi based upon the current values specified within the dialog. As the user updates the dialog fields a preview roi is drawn on the active image. This interactivity is not supported in IJ2. Final results are correct.

This is another plugin that needs a rewrite to support interactivity with plugins.

With commit b5ec6b3c57ba865ad55b45015a46786c6c57e2eb there is now a placeholder plugin for SpecifyOverlay. It needs to be enhanced to be interactive. But it is now runnable from menu and Overlay Manager.

It is missing some functionality from the IJ1 plugin. For instance calibrated dalog values are handled in IJ1. And the current overlay can be replaced with the results of this dialog in IJ1 (in IJ2 it always creates a new overlay). This last bit of functionality may not be desired.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to wontfix

We are no longer supporting use of ImageJ 1.x commands from modern ImageJ2 UIs. This plugin works fine in the legacy ImageJ 1.x UI, and adding it to ImageJ2 is not urgent.
