Smoothing method - recommendaton?

Hi,

I have a question concerning smoothing method. Currently, we are using the Savitzky-Golay filter, since we also used it when processing our data with XCMS/R, and here this is working properly.

Is there a recommendation, what method performs best in MS-Dial: Savitzky-Golay or linear weighting method (as regularily mentioned on the MS-Dial website) or another method?
Do you have to expect great differences, e.g. with respect to the occurrence of peak splitting (i.e. features are splitted into two or more separate features, though they belong to the same peak/analyte).

Thanks for your time and support.

Best regards
