Guys, is there an easy way to move sprites around 1 pixel at a time?? All of a sudden DE started crashing every time i tried to sue screen match. very annoying. I thought I'd give WDE a go, and now I am finding it VERY hard to place sprites accurately.

Any ideas?

To move sprites one pixel at a time, move your mouse very, very slowly. Duh

There are a couple other alternatives. I think if you hold in Control and move the arrow keys, it moves the screen around 1 pixel at a time... maybe its Control and Shift at the same time, I'm not sure.

Also, you could always modify the sprite properties directly... after you place a sprite (not holding it) right-click on it, hit properties, and enter in the x/y coordinates of where you want it.

Maybe WC will know.

In a series of e-mails with Gary Hertel, I know he never had plans for that. The best way is, inddeed, to use the coordinates in the sprite properties. Only problem is that I've noticed that WDE gets some sprite's cooridinates screwed up. At least, that's how it was in v0.9-something.

cool. It's a good editor, kudos to everyone who has worked on it!
