Summary0013807: Bug when opening several files at the same time

There is a bug when opening several files at the same time. As an example, I have two files (in this particular case a vtp and a vtu but works with any file), I "open" both of them but do not click on Apply. Once both of them appear in the pipeline browser I select one and click Apply THEN both of them are loaded. This looks like a bug.

This is the expected behaviour. This was the case with 3.14 and earlier. The rationale is that users can change multiple properties on several filters/source (or open multiple files) and then apply them all at once.

Has your use-case changed recently? If so, we can maybe provide a settings option or a special right-click context menu on Apply to "Apply Currrent Only" or something to that effect.

Hi Kyle,

This bug entry is coming from one of my user-department's requirements. I already contacted them by email and try to know what they prefer. In any case, what do you think is better? An option is maybe good but people will forget it, is a contextual right-click compatible with the philosophy of ParaView?

You're are right, it's not common for ParaView user's to expect the Apply button to have a context menu. Let's see what your users prefer and then decide.

I spoke with my users and they prefer a settings option. This is good because, as Utkarsh says, nobody expects a context menu in the apply button :) Of course the default behaviour will be the current behaviour.

Let's add a settings option to control if we apply "All" changes or only the "current" panel's changes.

I've added a new option in the Edit->Settings menu named 'Only Apply Current Panel` which will cause the Apply button to only apply settings for the currently active panel/proxy. By default it is disabled to stay with the previous behavior.
