View Multipoint in all layers of a z stack


I solved this myself but I have been asked to write the solution in case other people get stuck in the future

To view the multipoints on all layers of the z stack you just need to double click on the point tool and turn on show all. This allows you to zoom in and out and see all the points at once


As an aside, you can add that to a shortcut as well, i find this very useful if doing a great deal of multi point counting and working out what’s already in my z stack.

The IJ1 macro code is:

run("Point Tool...", "type=Circle color=Yellow size=[Extra Large] label show"); 

Obviously substituting the other custom parameters for your own. Multipoint doesn’t use the color parameter. To make it hidden again, remove “show”.
