Does Tiled have the equivalent of the Photoshop Eyedropper tool?
When this tools is selected in Photoshop, clicking on a pixel in the image will select that pixel’s colour as the new foreground colour. In Tiled when the eyedropper is selected and a tile is clicked in the view, that tile would be selected in the Tilesets window. This would allow that tile’s properties to be easily inspected or it to be used as a stamp etc. I would find this extremely useful for debugging too.
My current workflow is 1. Select correct layer 2. In the map view, hover the mouse over tile of interest and make mental note of the tile ID in [square brackets] at the bottom left of the screen tile 3. Select a random tile in the tilesets pane and use cursors until the ID in the Properties pane matches the number I noted. 4. Do what I want to do with the tile. This is a little long-winded and it’d be great to have a short-cut.
Arg, sorry! I believe a software upgrade on the AppVeyor platform has broken the daily builds so they stopped working on Monday. I’ll have to push some workaround. In the meantime, you should be able to try it with the following installer based on Visual Studio:
Arg, what a timing, I missed this and have just published the release! What a strange problem, I thought it was working since the ID property was updating fine. Well, I’ll make sure to fix it in Tiled 0.14.1.
Nooooo! Sorry - I just hit this for the first time now. I’ve also managed to get into a state where the custom property was greyed out, but I’ve so far been unable to reproduce. I’m having to be careful for now, as it can look like a tile has a Custom Property, so you add a value, but it just gets lost.
Yep, this was a very tricky bug where the set of tiles that actually got edited were the ones that were last manually selected in the tileset view, and not the tiles that you had grabbed from the map view. I’ve just pushed a fix to the master branch and I’d advise anybody using this feature to try a daily build including this change, once available. A Tiled 0.14.1 release will follow soon.
