Blocking: #1456


  • We need a plugin to replace IJ1's "Image > Properties" command.

This plugin could allow the user to override the dimensional extents. I.e., chang Z, C, and T lengths.
And Calibration
Hence, the Dataset class needs a method for updating the dimensional parameters; something like "setDimensions(long[])"
Unfortunately, this plugin is more complex than IJ1 because it needs to allow the user to add and remove dimensions... N-dimensional, after all!

Now that the add/delete axis functionality is complete, it can be used to implement this Image>Properties plugin.

Waiting on unit support (#445) and plugins that can handle varying numbers of axes as parameters (#623 & tangentially #606) to be addressed before tackling this ticket.

Now that we've stopped supporting Stack to Hyperstack and HyperStack to Stack perhaps we don't want to support dimension/shape changing plugins like this either. Editing units makes sense. Not so sure about dimensions.

(In #445) We should consider using the  Units of Measurement API, probably the  JScience implementation thereof.

See  this thread on imagej-devel for details.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Recently units and calibration was added to IJ2:

1) The ImageJ1 Properties command is fully supported.
2) The EditAxes plugin was enhanced to allow one to change units and calibration equation constants.

Thus I believe we are done here. Closing.
