Export Options and Polishing

This snapshot takes us one step closer to a Tiled 1.2 release. The last thing I still have on my list of things I'd like to include is to integrate this devlog in Tiled, so no new feature will go unnoticed! But for now, he's what's new since the last snapshot:

Export Options

This snapshot adds several new export options, which can be enabled in the preferences and are applied each time the current map or tileset is exported (without affecting the map itself):

  • Embed tilesets - For example when you are exporting to JSON and loading an external tileset is not desired
  • Detach templates - If you want to use the templates feature but can't or don't want to load the external template object files
  • Resolve object types and properties - Stores effective object type and properties with each object

Essentially, each of these options can help to keep your loading code simpler, at the cost of additional file size. All these options are also available for those exporting using the command-line.


Existing new features for the next release have also received some attention. All layer actions have been adjusted to work on all selected layers. This includes grouping/ungrouping multiple layers, moving multiple layers up/down and deleting or duplicating multiple layers. For the multi-map worlds feature, there is now hover feedback for switching between maps, a border around each map and other maps are rendered darker instead of partially transparent.
