#23 closed defect (invalid)

Loading new data w/ECC turned on should prompt user for ECC reload

Description

When loading a new data file while an ECC method is applied (i.e. ECC != None), what should happen? Our rule is that existing spectral processing options should be retained and applied to newly-loaded data, but that doesn't make sense with ECC. Why? Because each data file has a specific, corresponding ECC file and so retaining the ECC data when new data is loaded will almost always be the wrong thing to do.

One solution is that when a new data file is loaded and ECC != None, Analysis should prompt the user with a message like this --

"Analysis assumes that you want to discard your current ECC data. Do you also want to load a new ECC data file?

Click Yes to open a new ECC data file.

Click No to discard your existing ECC data.

Click Cancel to retain your existing ECC data.
"

  • Resolution set to invalid

No longer relevant. Opening/importing a file never replaces existing data, it always opens a new tab.
