Generate Ids filter should be able to distinguish between cell and point ids
GenerateIds filter adds a point field containing the point id and a cell field containing the cell id. The problem is that both fields are given the same name, and that can create a lot of downstream confusion when operating on the fields. For example, if you then do a
Probe Location, did it give you a point id or a cell id? It is unclear and very difficult to control.
GenerateIds filter should implement at least one of these 2 solutions:
- Have checkbox items named
Generate Point Idsand
Generate Cell Ids, both defaulted to on, that all you to control which fields are created. That way you can create only the ids you care about.
- Be able to create different names for the point field and the cell field. Currently you can change the
Array Name, but whatever you set that to it is used for both point and cell fields.
