Default Scaling droplet glyphs in Paraview

I have a simulation that I'm trying to view in Paraview. I'm having difficulty with displaying my injection droplets in a manner similar to what I used to have in a previous job using Ensight for visualisation.

I used to be able to select the parcel information, display it as a spherical glyph with the sizing scaled by dp_radius and coloured by the same, but I cant figure out a way to get the same in Paraview.

Vtu > Glyph - Simple bunch of white spheres of a fixed radius, unable to scale or colour by anything except cell normals (which is useless). Scalars & Vectors unusable.

VTU > Extract Block (Parcel data) - No difference between displaying as surface or as a point, but at least I can colour it by dp_radius. I just have clouds of single pixels floating around.

Is there a way to combine these into the same display as in Ensight?
