Scrolling Game Development Kit UI Help Up to Edit Maps Dialog

Layer Quick View Window

This is part of a series of pages describing the Edit Maps Dialog. This page describes the Layer Quick View Window.

The Quick View Layer feature is new as of version 1.3. To access it, select a layer in the Edit Maps Dialog and click the Quick View button. This allows quick access to just that one layer without bringing up the full screen map editor. It also allows you to zoom in and out and display path and sprite names.

Using the quick view window simply consists of scrolling around to see the entire layer and clicking the toolbar buttons to set options. So described here will simply be a list of what the toolbar buttons do, in order:

The position and size of the window, as well as all the options set by the toolbar, are saved in the registry when the window is closed and will be restored next time the window is displayed.
