  • Enable only in the context of ParticleComposition?


#1 Updated by herck about 2 years ago

It's a lot more complex than enabling it for ParticleComposition. One can define a lattice of simple basic particles using a ParticleDistribution, where the position will have an effect on the scattering. The same applies when two particles sit in a ParticleLayout with some interference function.
In my opinion, it is not necessary to disable parameters that do not influence the scattering. The same reasoning would mean that we disable elevating particles higher in the top vacuum layer.

Ok, then rejecting.
I just thought how to alleviate user's confusion. We have answered on (x,y)-behavior question quite a few time already
