I was typing in a textfield but must’ve clicked off and hit a bunch of hot keys and the screen went dark just as the “No rules found at:” popup came up. I’m not a tiled veteran, so assuming this was some uncaught runtime error I closed and reopened the editor expecting to see it back to normal, which it was not. I just assumed I triggered some rendering glitch in my level and started searching the issue, it took a while but I finally found that I enabled highlight current layer.
I find it strange that an editor has default shortcuts for global settings as lone keys, I never see this in programs and it’s a recipe for disaster, especially when there are textfields to type into. I recommend mapping all default shortcuts to something involving a modifier key. Typically tools have single key shortcuts and settings involve a modifier key.
Newbs to tiled are the ones who will accidentally trigger this and to the untrained eye these all appear as though something went terribly wrong, where veterans will have already mapped out their own shortcuts.
P.S.: it was be cool if options like “highlight current layer” had toggle buttons in the layer window
