Let's learn from what happened with 1.25, and put out an experimental first. Should be fairly reliable, but still - treat it as an experimental. Look out for bugs, especially new ones, and report any that you do find.

Download link: https://www.neolemmix.com/download.php?id=444

Changes from V1.27:

> Added support for copying/pasting terrain groups between editor instances
> Added support for editing (not merely preserving) the direction and speed of moving background objects
> Added support for opening levels via command line / drag-and-drop (this also allows configuring Open With with the editor)
> Grid status indicator added in lower-right of level area
> Quantity of normal, zombie and neutral lemmings is now displayed next to the lemming count input box
> "Snap to grid" option added to menu bar
> Fixed a bug where backgrounds would sometimes not display correctly
> Fixed a bug where the group / ungroup piece options in the Edit menu were non-functional
> Fixed a bug where trigger areas were shown for object types with no trigger effect
> Fixed bugs that caused piece locations to "jump" when selecting them if the grid is enabled
> Fixed a graphical bug with nine-sliced objects
> Fixed the bug where the color of the Jumper skill count input box doesn't change like the others do based on skill count


Known issues (fixed in V1.28-B):
- Isses with initial sizing of window - see reply #6
- Pieces dragged outside level have positioning issues - see reply #8
- If a preplaced lemming is marked as both Zombie and Neutral, it gets counted as both in the zombie / neutral counts, instead of only as a zombie. This does not affect hatches.
- Neutral / Zombie counts show as 0 after loading level until a piece is moved or edited.
- Some deprecations that shouldn't still be supported, were.

Known issues for V1.28-B:
- None yet

Will take a look at it tomorrow probably, but it would be nice to have some more people go over it, as I myself did not actively noticed quite a few of these bugs and I cannot completely say if all of them are gone. ;)

Very exciting update! I've made a quick level and tested the following features:

1 > Added support for copying/pasting terrain groups between editor instances - Tested this with some grouped terrain, works a treat. Great feature!
2 > Added support for editing (not merely preserving) the direction and speed of moving background objects - Not tested (not entirely sure what this one means)
3 > Added support for opening levels via command line / drag-and-drop (this also allows configuring Open With with the editor) - Works brilliantly. I did a happy dance, and then spent the next few minutes opening levels just by clicking them, or by drag-dropping into an open Editor instance, just because we now can! :lemcat:
4 > Grid status indicator added in lower-right of level area - Works for selected terrain, objects, and sketches, but doesn't show cursor location when nothing is selected (which I'm guessing is the correct, intended behaviour). Do the co-ordinates refer to the top left corner of the piece?
5 > Quantity of normal, zombie and neutral lemmings is now displayed next to the lemming count input box - Tested: I made a level with 3 hatches and 4 lems. Whichever hatch is drawn first will spawn the extra lem, so order is important for this feature
6 > "Snap to grid" option added to menu bar - Not tested; I don't use the grid, so this feature is probably best tested by someone who uses it extensively
7 > Fixed a bug where backgrounds would sometimes not display correctly - Not tested
8 > Fixed a bug where the group / ungroup piece options in the Edit menu were non-functional - Tested; works fine
9 > Fixed a bug where trigger areas were shown for object types with no trigger effect - Tested; works fine
10> Fixed bugs that caused piece locations to "jump" when selecting them if the grid is enabled - Not tested (see item 6)
12> Fixed a graphical bug with nine-sliced objects - Not tested; I haven't yet had a chance to play with nine-slicing properly, but I no doubt will very soon
13> Fixed the bug where the color of the Jumper skill count input box doesn't change like the others do based on skill count - Oh yeah! I'd never noticed that before :P

Nice level, even if it's not meant to be taken seriously, since it's just like you said, you're just testing the editor by making a very quick level ;)

Darn, sorry, will test today, completely slept it. A Hearts of Iron session came in the evening where I planned to test. ;P

Ok, tested it.

In General:

- For some reason now the editor starts always of as a small window for me instead of my previously closed big wiindow/fullscreen. Is there a way that it remembers the size it was closed on again?

This is quite annoying right now. So a fix would be very appreciated. ;P

I haven't intentionally changed anything that would affect this, so this is a bug. Can confirm that I can reproduce it.

I also tested it while making a level last night.
Everything seems fine for me except for one weird thing :

If you select multiple terrain pieces and drag them at the corner of the level, their relative positions crush a little bit.

Narrowed down that this was introduced in commit db54768, but haven't figured out anything beyond that yet.

EDIT: And fixed.
