Feature request: Real-time saving of manual picker data


I just spent 6.5 hours manually curating picks from 1000+ micrographs in a Manual Picker job and then the job randomly crashed leaving me with nothing. This has happened to me many times before - I imagine others have had this same issue. Could a feature be added to auto-save to the disk picks from each micrograph after moving on to another micrograph in the Manual Picker job? This would save so many headaches.

Thank you,


Hi @alexjamesnoble ,

Thanks for the post and sorry you had to go through that :frowning:

We’ve created a to-do to enable auto-saving to the Manual Picker job.

Awesome! I think many will appreciate this feature =)


This would be great - it would also be great to have the total number of manual picks displayed somewhere, rather than just the number for each micrograph!


We also have users spent days in manual picker job and lost everything when it crashed. Any option to save existing picks at the middle of the job will be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!
