[SUG][EDITOR] Make the dropdown for selecting styles wider
« on: March 25, 2021, 01:17:19 AM »
Purely just a suggestion but I've always noticed that the style names are too wide for the styles dropdown menu and it makes it harder to read the style names.

I'm referring to the style selector which is on the left above the terrain and object tiles themselves, to the left of the "Get Terrain" button.

I'd definitely support this, too! :thumbsup: Of course, having some systematic order to the styles would also be nice (we've discussed that in another thread already), but just being able to read all the style names in their entirety would already be a huge improvement.
My packs so far:
Lemmings World Tour (New & Old Formats), my music-themed flagship pack, 320 levels - Let's Played by Colorful Arty
Lemmings Open Air, my newest release and follow-up to World Tour, 120 levels
Paralems (Old Formats), a more flavour-driven one, 150 levels
Pit Lems (Old Formats), a more puzzly one, 100 levels - Let's Played by nin10doadict
Lemmicks, a pack for (very old) NeoLemmix 1.43 full of gimmicks, 170 levels

I'm in support of this but at the same time, I'd like to suggest having a folder styled menu for the styles in editor, similar to selecting packs in NeoLemmix, the highlighted style that's selected has their pieces/objects/etc shown.

You can order the styles yourself by modifying the "styles.ini" file. I did this to make sure all the styles in GGF appear at the top of the editor dropdown. However, you need to be careful not to overwrite this when you future update the styles.
