How do I copy and paste tiles? (new beta update)

  • So in the new beta release r208 it says:

    [quote:3208qvbx]Tilemap editor: can now hold shift+right click while dragging over a range of tiles, and the tilemap editor will select all the tiles from the start tile to the end tile. Useful for selecting patches to stamp out again.

    I feel silly because I can't figure out how to get this to work. Is anyone else able to use this? I try doing what it says, holding shift+right click while dragging over some tiles I have already placed but it doesn't seem to do it--it doesn't look like it's selecting anything as I drag and it just brings up the usual right click dialog when i get to the end of dragging and release shift and right click....

  • Just tested with r219 and this functionality works.

    Here is an animated gif of it in action:

    Ahh, I see, you have to engage the tilemap editor first and then it works. I was thinking it might have copied ALL of the tiles that were selected rather than just one for each in the editor, but still useful.
