I can't fill the edge weight column with a single number when this column is dynamic. However I would like to erase the dynamic weight and replace it by a static value.
If the weight is dynamic you can't fill it with a static value, you have to fill it with something like [start,end,value]
Is it possible to cast it silently? Or if not possible, to raise a message explaining that it is not possible? Currently there is no warning and no change, so it feels like a bug.
A silent cast for parsing dynamic types without intervals info would be possible, but what default interval should be used? Maybe [-Infinity, Infinity, simple_value_by_user]
Also, a warning on filling a column with a value when that column was not able to parse the value seems appropiate, yes.
I vote for the first option :)
