Morpho editor creates unwanted node (spatialVector)
I had a data package containing a data table with two attributes, Column 1 and
Column 2. I opened morpho's editor, clicked on "Show All", and expanded
1/CHOICE/SEQUENCE. I right-clicked on the missingValueCode node and selected
"Copy Node & Children". I then right-clicked on "attribute-Column 2" and
selected "Paste as Sibling to Selected Node". [I actually wanted to paste the
missingValueCode node under attribute-Column 2/CHOICE/SEQUENCE/ (where this node
should be in theory), but the editor didn't give me this option.] I entered -999
in the missingValueCode field and clicked on "Trim". I expanded dataset/CHOICE
and noticed that spatialVector (with its box checked in) appeared under
dataTable, although I had not created this node. When I clicked on OK to close
the editor, I got a window filling my screen with a list of 59 nodes under
The only way to get out of there was to press "Esc".

A similar experience on this file:
Morpho added a node (dateTimeDomain), labeled it required in the tree editor,
then sent an error mesage because there was no content. The eml201 schema says
dateTimeDomain is optional.

Will pointed out that changing any text field in the data table will check the
spatialVector field's checkbox in the morpho editor, but only if the
spatialVector is already present (which will happen if you click "show all").
This detail may be important because it illustrates that the spatialVector node
is not being added when a field's value is change. The spatialVector's state is
changed only if the spatialVector node is already present.
