I'm following the 'how to make a platform game' tutorial.
There are 144 frames in the tileset.
It's awkward to go back to the initial frame box and guess a number to find the right tile.
Is there shortcut for cycling through the frames?
(I see in the manual that you can ctrl+left/right to parse animations, but I don't see an equivelent for 'initial frame'.)
Thanks for reading.

I would go into the image/animations editor (double click the object, or right click in the objects bar and choose "Edit animations" or "Edit image") and take a look at the animations frame to see which frame I want (it will show all the frames, so the correct one should be easy to pick out)
It can be helpful to arrange all of the tiles around the edge of the layout - each set to a different frame. It takes a while to set up 144 of them but it makes level building easier because you can easily find the one you're looking for and CTRL-drag to copy it onto the layout.
