'Data source' in post-processing doesn't respect 'Visibility -> Force Component'
I noticed that setting the option
Post processing options -> Aspect -> Data Source
to a different view only uses the default
Visibility. E.g. for a six component field (a stress tensor), the Von Mises scalar is used as colour.
This is a often utilized as a way of showing stresses on a deformed structure.
When looking at the undeformed stress field view, the tab
Post processing options -> Visibility -> Force Scalar
allows one to select components of the tensor (e.g. only normal stress sigma_x). The deformed view doesn't allow this selection, as far as I can tell.
It would be best if the visibility settings of the tensor field are respected also in the 'deformed view'. Furthermore, the settings in
View[i].CustomMin should be respected.
Steps to reproduce: As an example, I'm attaching two files. One holds the deformation information and the other one the stress tensor

I think this would be the expected behaviour. Thanks for your attention.
