  • This occurs because the runtime only supports one set of margin values. The editor supports individual margins, but only the first set are used at runtime. To work around it, clone the object four times and set the margins for each different type. The runtime should work the same as the editor, but at least there's an easy workaround for now.

  • Thank you I will use the work around for now, are there any plans to remedy the multiple margins? as having multiple 9-patch objects of the same image seems a bit wasteful. Any ideas on the in editor display issues? (Updated the post so images appear)

    Edit: the display issue was being caused by WebGL being enabled and certain objects being viewed.

  • Construct 2 will deduplicate images on export so it's not wasteful. I'll leave the bug report open and try to support this in future.
