Problem with DataInspector

DataInspector no longer works for me after the recent Makie update:



ERROR: type Array has no field extents

I’m using Julia Version 1.7.3, GLMakie v0.6.6 on Windows 10.

Ah that is because of the new argument order for text, should be easy enough to fix hopefully.

It looks like this has been fixed in GLMakie 0.6.8 (thanks!!) but I now have a problem with the textsize keyword. Eg

using GLMakie

the keyword has no effect and the text is tiny on my screen.

Oh, I accidentally replaced a semicolon with a comma. As a workaround you can use inspector = DataInspect(); inspector.plot.textsize[] = 100 until that’s fixed.

Great, that works! Thanks for all your hard work, Makie works very well for my purposes and is getting better all the time.
