Some clarification on Hide Dataset Actions and Workflow Outputs.
You are correct in your guess that if no workflow outputs are flagged, we do assume you'd rather see everything than nothing. This is why an extracted history with nothing flagged as an output, just like if you had an old workflow from before outputs were available, will show everything.
How about doing this check when loading a workflow for editing - at that point if nothing is starred as an output, star everything. That way the editing UI matches the run time behaviour.
I definitely understand some of the confusion here, and I agree that given the functionality available using just the new workflow outputs we should probably just remove manual control over Hide Dataset Actions, and represent this solely through the workflow output asterisks.
I'll also soon be adding options for marking all / none as outputs to make working with large workflows easier.
That sounds promising. Thanks for the clear explanation,
