Not much to say this build - just a minor update to fix some usability issues in the animations editor. Some other bug fixes and improvements thrown in to the batch.

Image points and more on the way!

Changelog

Add

Picture editor: holding shift and changing the hotspot sets the hotspot in all animation frames

Add

Picture editor: holding shift and clicking crop will crop all the frames in the animation

Change

Change

Picture editor: the hotspot tool can be un-selected by clicking the tool button again

Change

Picture editor: Arrow keys now nudge the hotspot 1px at a time instead of assigning it to an edge

Change

Increased event sheet margin to show event numbers > 1000

Bug Fix

Animation preview did not work on some systems

Bug Fix

Deleting some project elements did not enable the save button

Bug Fix

Crash importing a non-image file as an animation frame

Bug Fix

Crash inserting a sprite while editing a tiled background's image

Bug Fix

Event variables with an initial string were not escaped correctly in the javascript code

Special characters in the system find and replace expressions broke preview

Performance

It's wonderful design, but could unify versions. A program allowing only the choice of HTTP or offline game. If you choose Http Filter the extensions supported. For the second construct, has a great lack of good extensions.
