Loading saved states from scripts does not work
The following simple script writes a test.pvsm state, that state is unreadable by the GUI with the following versions of ParaView:
from paraview.simple import * cone = Cone() rv = GetRenderView() dr = Show(cone, rv) SaveState('test.pvsm')
In my tests i used pvbatch and paraview of the same version to run the script and to open the test.pvsm state.
