Hello, I'm trying to get Moveit Visual Tools to work, and have found that it is not publishing the collision objects to my move_group/monitored_planning_scene topic, and is instead publishing to a topic sharing the name of the node itself. Is there any way I can pass these messages to the proper topic, or is there a member function for Visual Tools that I'm not seeing?

If I need to post my code, I'm willing to, but it's effectively a copy-paste from the demo code.

Thanks in advance, Josh

I know this is an old post but for anyone else finding this, I've fixed this problem by calling visual_tools.setPlanningSceneTopic("/move_group/monitored_planning_scene"); before loading visual_tools.loadPlanningSceneMonitor();
