VCR Controls Broken with Temporal Collection XDMF File
When a temporal-collection XDMF (version 2) file is loaded by ParaView, the "VCR Controls" at the top to navigate through time steps are disabled.
However, the "Time Inspector," available from the "View" menu can be used to navigate through the time steps. Further, when "Save Animation..." is selected from the "File" menu, all of the frames export as expected (see attached screenshots).
Note: the LLNL VisIt utility can correctly load and display the attached test case.
