  1. Format specification in Annotate Attribute data

    The current "Annotate Attribute data" filter in Paraview does not have format specification options. As an example, when annotating say (0,0,0) element of a cell data array "U" with a value of "0.123456789" shows " U = 0.123456789" on the render view. It may be helpful to have a feature where one can specify the format (say "U = %5.2f") to display only "U = 0.12" on the screen instead of the 9 significant digits from the original data. Thanks!

    • Transform position relative to screen

      Add a feature to Transform filter, or a new filter, where you can transform something relative to screen. With that it would be possible to position a source with one click parallel to screen if the coordinate system doesn't align with screen.

      • Three Arrows with Glyph Plot

        Hello,

        When I create a vector plot, the plot returns with three arrows representing each point instead of one arrow. How can I change from three arrows to one arrow?

        • create an "Equirectangular View".

          An "Equirectangular View" would be a fantastic addition to the software.

          Right now being we are not even able to link camera movements relatively in order to create an "interactive cubemap". All linked cameras have to have the same position. That can be improved.

          That would be a great start to an "Equirectangular View"

            • chart marker

              custom chart data marker mouse-over labels
              I would like to be able to define the interactive label which appears when you mouse over markers in line chart view. Specifically I would like to be able to select a dataset/vector which appears as the marker label on mouse over. For example, if plotting up a csv file with three columns of data (label, x, y), it would be useful to be able to plot the x, y data and have the label data appear on mouse-over.

                    • Aerodynamics: integration of a 3D/2D space onto a plane/line

                      A typical analysis of aerodynamic data is to integrate all variables along a direction in order to project the integrated data onto a plane or a line: this allows the analysis of say the evolution of the mean section temperature along a duct and so on.
                      A partial solution already exist for integrating 3D/2D data onto a line(https://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/openfoam-paraview/116033-obtain-average-pressure-over-range-slices.html) but it is not efficient at all as it demands an animation in order to create an external CSV file iteratively. An efficient, built-in solution, without need of creating an external CSV file is needed.
                      Moreover, the reduction of 3D…

                      • Ability to annotate a point and display text normal to view with offset to that point.

                        I wish to show where prob points are measured visually. My solution is to create a script with 3D text showing points annotated with prob number, however, this is only valid for one view and orientation. If it would dynamically adjust to my camera view then it would be much more useful,

                            The scale of the present Axes Grid is same for the all axes. So when I set Scale values on the Transforming property or Transform Filter, the values of grids become meaningless.

                                    • Extend supported file name endings to include *.encas files (Ensight case files)

                                      The EnSight case file name convention also includes *.encas files which have the same file format as the already available *.case, *.CASE, and *.Case files. ANSYS Fluent exports ensight files by default as *.encas files and these files are not recognized by Paraview. It would be trivial to also include the *.encas file name extension in the list of EnSight files and would make life a bit easier.

                                      • Add python shell in paraview configure

                                        Due to the screen DPI now getting smaller and smaller, the python shell embedded in paraview lack of appropriate font adjustment, hoping to join customizable features about python shell appearance.
