I was wondering if there is a way to prevent auto-selecting an option
for Running a workflow? Quiet often users (especially novices) would
re-run workflows without checking much the data that goes in thinking it
will be the same as before. But because the options in drop down menus
are auto-populated it seems the top option is always selected by
default. For example, previously we had a single fasta file as reference
and in the process of a workflow few other fasta files get generated.
they appear above the previous fasta in the selection, so without paying
attention people skip the input without really checking it.
This behavior would be a bug - workflow parameters should be preserved.
What release are you on - we fixed a bug related to this after the initial
August release (
that should be available in the latest august stable tag.
Is it possible you were on the August release but don't have this fix?
If it is a bug and is still present in the latest stable branch if you
could provide steps to reproduce it in a clean clone of Galaxy it could go
a long way toward helping us track down a fix.
Can we manually add a "blank" selection at the top to force users to
