  1. Correct wireframe for quadratic elements in multi-core mode

    Wireframe (or surface with wireframe) representation does not work with quadratic elements when in multi-core mode. The cause is that quadratic wireframe is not supported when geometry is shipped from server to client (which is implicitly the case for multi-core mode). See bug 10676, the bug that originally implemented correct quadratic wireframes, for more details on this unimplemented case.

    • universal file

      Many open-source CAE software can import/export .unv files (I-DEAS universal files).

      I would like to have this option in ParaView

      • edge elements

        Right now quantities are associated to nodes or elements, but in electromagnetics some quantities are naturally associated to faces (fluxes) or edges (magnetomotive forces) and special finite elements (nedelec / raviart-thomas) can be used to interpolate such quantities. Is support for such entities planned? If not how difficult would it be to implement it?

        • Create the ability to change the type of line (e.g. dashed for negative) when creating contour lines

          I'm trying to create contour plots for fields that range from negative to positive values, but I'm unable to easily change the negative one to dashed lines so they can easily be identified.

          • Add a time range selection on filters input, in particular, for the temporal statistics filter

            A lot of simulations have a transient period, interesting but not relevant for statistics. In addition, it could be useful to not "download" these data: a kind of new time origin.

            • SEG-Y seismic data reader (2D and 3D)

              It would be useful to have a reader for SEG-Y seismic data, with the option to translate between big-endian and little-endian forms (UNIX to PC). This may be a complicated task since most data will be in two-way time (unless depth converted). However , this should not be a problem given that the freeware GMT software can read the data and convert to a useable format. Something to consider.

              • Easier to use Plane Source

                The plane source seems very awkward to use - specifying three corners of the plane. A more natural way to specify a plane is by the origin and normal vector. A radius would also be needed to specify how large the patch of the plane should be. Maybe a "Square Sphere Source" source could be added on top of the existing Sphere Source so people can use the existing one for "difficult" planes (non-rectangular) and the new one for "easy" planes (square).

                • Add a ability to select nearest point...

                  Would be a nice feature to select a point in the data not only with the rubber-band but with a modus "next point". This means, clicking on a surface an hold e.g. <cntl> the nearest point relative to the cursor is selected.

                  • Add the ability to use different fonts

                    Adding latex functionality would also be great, but impractical for some purposes. There are 3 fonts, serif, sans and mono. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 on this computer, and it gives me the options of arial, times and courier, the free ms fonts. The fonts, however, are not arial times and courier. I think they are some of the fonts from my distribution. I installed the ttf-mscorefonts package which installs arial, times etc. from the repositories, but the fonts remain the same.
                    I personally would like to choose my own font like Freesans or Nimbus, which both are Helvetica clones.…

                    • Allow to write the meshes format that can be read ! (For instance .stl, .ply ...)

                      It is very frustrating to use various softwares in order to convert files from .vtk. Since Paraview includes lots of readers, why not writing the corresponding writers ?

                      • Add boolean operations...

                        I see that it's been requested for quite a while! It'd be marvelous if you could just obtain the difference, union or intersection of two shapes with a click of a button... Just saying....

                        • improve windows 10 compatibility

                          Windows 10 seems to have some incompatibilities with Paraview (v. 5.1.0), and sometimes crashes when opening .xdmf files. Also, when representing volumes, they do not look as good as in Ubuntu 14.04.

                          • Extend "Select Cells On" etc. to the missing boolean operations.

                            Currently the menu options: Select Cells On, Select Cells Through, Select Points On/Through ... offer the possibility to select subsets with the mouse. An already selected "selection" can be extended with the Ctrl key as modifier and the same commands. But it is not possible to remove from the selection with for example the Alt key as modifier (as is implemented in a lot of other programs). This would be a conventient extension of these 4 menu commands.

                                    Scale the speed at which zoom occurs based on mouse input. In other words, add a user preference for scaling how rapidly or slowly the scene zooms in or out based on moving the scroll wheel. My mouse seems extremely sensitive.

                                      • Loading camara positions (.pvcc) by animation view, camara

                                        The tool to interpolate camera positions via the Animation view is very nice. But typing cam positions is very boring. In the dialogue you can use the current cam position. But I miss the possibility to load saved camera positions via the pvcc file.

                                        • Extract the index from selected points, in the order they are selected and extract plane parameters from slice

                                          Hi, I would like to extract the index of the points selected in the order I selected them. But when I choose extract selection and save the csv file, I get them ordered from small to big. Also I would like to save the point coordiantes and his normal when I choose slice. I see them in the box in the left, but there is no option to save them in a csv file. Thanks
