Frame editor: new "Draw Lines" option in grid options is nice addition, but to make it even more precise I think we could have an option "not" to hide mouse cursor. When in Paint mode, mouse cursor hides and it leads often to not correct tile placement. I attach a picture where I explain this.
Here is what happens after click (click for zoom):
When I place blocks in the grid I often missplace the position to left or to right or above. Reason is because backdrop is added at its 0/0pos and snapped to grid where the mouse cursor is. Because mouse is hidden, it can lead to bad placement. It's not a bug but I think if we were able to see mouse cursor, it would increase precision greatly.
As now we can set flag by expression, will it be possible to compare to one of the flags as alterable values do in the future? This will slightly improve the efficiency, especially when you need to scope a bunch of object Bs by flag according to object A's flag (or calcuated by it, e.g. negate)...
I've never installed a beta version before, I just wait for the official releases but to all of you who have installed beta builds before. Have you ever encountered corrupt mfa's etc? (Yves always warns that stuff like that COULD happen) but have they ever happened or is your experience that it's more or less as stable/safe as the official builds?
I don't remember if this ever happened, maybe once or twice though. Any change is a risk, that's why we always recommend you to make backup copies of your MFAs before loading them with beta versions (well, you should also do it with release versions anyway :).
PS: anyway the current version seems stable enough, we might release it as official version today (with a fix in the picture editor for the surface object)
Thank you for the update :)
Another QoL request: Would it be possible to "Pin" layers attributes? So their visibility or lock wouldn't change when you use the All buttons. Would make the workflow of working with different layers smoother.
Also if possible to get a search bar in the Create Object box.
Update: the build 292.26 is available as release candidate. Just one minor change and some translations. In theory this is the next official build.
It seems like there's a fix that isn't on the changelog. I reported a while ago that switching bookmarks in the Event List Editor ignores bookmarks on events that are currently selected (which could cause confusion in certain circumstances). This seems to have been fixed now, yes?
Not a big deal, but if it's easy, could we get the fields in the Animation Editor's RMB>Zoom to remember their last settings? They always default to 100% and 10 frames, which seems unlikely to be useful (surely no one's choosing "zoom" to create 10 copies of a frame at exactly the same size). Even if you just changed the defaults to something like 200% and 1 frame, that would help.
