Re: Deleting a Map Tile Set
Your experience with the default set matches mine what I have observed.
Now that I know that moving entire XML blocks will change the menu order, I plan to go in and overhaul my entire map hierarchy, both file locations and menu order. That should allow me to share maps between the three or four platforms that I have the program on. I was delaying that only because I wasn't sure how to change the menu order. No more excuses now!
Now if I could just right click on a tile that I see needs updating and tell it to delete only that tile...
Always good to hear from you.
