unable to covert dicoms using Windows version of MRIcroGL
Hello,

I am trying to convert dicoms to nifis using the Windows version of MRIcroGL (2018). I can successfully select Import-->Convert Dicom to Nifti. This brings up the dicom2niix gui. After I select my output folder I get stuck. I cannot return to the main menu to select my input files (dicoms). When the dicom2niix gui is open it prevents access to the MRIcroGL menu where I would be selecting my dicoms. 

Am I doing something wrong?

Please make sure you are using the latest release (v1.2.20181114). You only need to select "output folder" once - that just tells the program where you want to save the covnerted data. After that you drag and drop the DICOM folders onto the toolbar of the dcm2niix GUI and it will convert the files for you. By the way, if you want to quickly view DICOM images (and do not care about converting them), you can drag and drop the DICOM folder onto the main MRIcroGL window - unless the dcm2nii GUI dialog is visible it assumes you just want to look at your images.

Thank you for clearing that up. I didn't realized that the dcm2niix toolbar
was waiting for me to drag and drop the files there.

Best,
