Glyph filter GUI for 2D Glyphs is terrible
The interface for the Glyph filter is fine for "3D Glyphs," but it also supports what it calls "2D Glyphs" (like flat polygonal glyphs or vertex cells), and the interface for those is stupid. I'll go over the steps to create vertex cells (which is something I use the Glyph filter frequently for to convert a set of points with no cell data to something that you can see).
Glyph Typeyou cannot select
Vertex. Instead you select
2D Glyph. (Never mind that a vertex is not 2D).
- Now there is a second combo box also labeled
Glyph Type. Yes, that's right. There are two combo boxes with the exact same name. Yeah, that makes no sense.
- In this second
Glyph Typecombo box, you can select
- But wait, you probably already got confused in step 2 because you didn't see the second
Glyph Typecombo box. That's because it is an "advanced" property. That's right, to select any 2D Glyph you have to have the advanced properties on.
This does not make any sense. Instead, the 2D glyphs should just be listed in the
Glyph Type combo box. So instead of selecting
2D Glyph in the combo box, you should just be able to select
Vertex right there.
