Understanding "Peak Spots"

Hi everyone,

I am not sure if this is a rudimentary question (I have just started using MS-DIAL for pollen lipidomic studies), but can anyone help to explain what the "peak spots" drag bar essentially means? I understand that 100% shows all of the suspected peaks, but as I show less and less (such as 50% or 5%), how does the program choose which peaks to show and which to remove? I thought it may be based on the intensity of the peak or the match score, but it does not seem to follow these parameters. Any advice would be appreciated!
