Ptolemy II models can be paused, adjusted, and restarted...

There is a pause button right on the toolbar...

Let me guess: the person you talked to decided it would be
easier to create their own workflow environment rather than
add the functionality they need to Kepler, right?  I get that
a lot... Such people are not to be taken seriously...

This was good.  However, the drawback was that they had decided against using it for their needs because it lacks the specific ability to pause/adjust/restart a workflow and they said this was critical to their work.  They are computational chemists.

And I believe Deana had identified that too before I arrived on the project and maybe some of the rest of you too.  But I just wanted to raise this issue again for future consideration.
