Hello, I’m planning to attend tomorrow. I’d like to discuss the markups module/toolbar, following up on the forum discussions here and here, and markups use cases collected.

  • Custom‐fitting Surgical Guides on Slicer by @mau_igna_06
  • Markups draw curve by @simonoxen
  • Approach to streamline use of markup for measurement, land-marking and registration use cases
    • These are different use cases
    • Possible path forward:
      • Discussed the idea of creating a “Measurement” toolbar or module
      • Revisiting the current Markup toolbar to simplify its use by moving some of its functionality into a menu
      • Customizing the qSlicerMarkupsPlaceWidget
  • Unifying Segmentation and Markup mode regarding mouse “ownership”
    • May be sensible to unify segmentation mode (e.g drawing a scissor) and markup place modes.

Additional discussion of possible markups node selection(setting the active node) always by left clicking the object in the slice views if visible which would select the node in the Markups module and also would be reflected by the selected markup node in the markups toolbar node selector.

Discussion as well in regards to confusion of “Selected” state of markups node versus “Active” node and how these aren’t the same. Control points can have selected state and nodes can have selected state.

Also confusion regarding selected color, active color, highlighted color and how these are different colors to set.
