Feature request: export (subset) shortcut (or right click menu customise?)

Dear CryoSPARC team,

Is there an easy way to automate export of (just) the particles.cs files from multiple refinements/volume alignment runs? CryoSPARC Tools can do it I expect? I’d prefer a method which doesn’t require using a terminal, as we have several new users who are… less than comfortable in the command line.

Would it be possible to add an export sub-option in the job right click menu?

Or would it be possible to have a customisable pop-out menu in the right click options, where options which users find themselves following regularly could be added?

Thanks in advance.

edit: Export job exports everything. Don’t really need everything exported most of the time, hence the specificity…

edit: Attempted to clarify exactly what I meant…

Hi @rbs_sci ,

Thanks very much for your suggestion! I believe you’re referring to additional download options, rather than modified export functionality?

Typically jobs are not necessarily self-contained, as they may contain symlinks and references to other files in the project. Exporting jobs allows them to be consolidated such that you can compress/copy the job directory and import it into another project or instance.

The export function is different from downloading, which allows users to select outputs/results and download them via the web application.

If I’m interpreting correctly, you’d like more advanced download options such that multiple result types (particles, maps) can be downloaded simultaneously across iterations or jobs? For example, you could multi-select a set of refinement jobs and choose to download the particle .cs file for each.

If so, we’ve made a note of this on our to-do list!

Yes, that’s it. Thanks!
