Construct 2 - Stange Image Editor Behavior & Applock

Report Construct 2 bugs here.

Post » Wed Aug 02, 2017 6:41 pm

Problem Description
Construct 2 behaves in a weird way when selecting the rectangle tool inside the image editor.
It even locks your mouse while importing sprite stips in certain cases.

Attach a Capx
Example Download

Description of Capx
Empty project a with single sprite on a layout (including sprite strip for testing).

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  1. Open example project
  2. Doubleclick sprite and open image editor
  3. Select the rectangle selection tool*
  4. Rightclick the animation frames pane > import frames > from sprite strip
  5. Click on import and notice that you cannot click anywhere (Pressing escape still works, unnecessary mouselock code?)
*IMPORTANT STEP, I highly recommend to re-select the tool if it was already selected!

Observed Result
Any mouse interaction while importing a sprite strip is being blocked by Construct 2.
There are also noticeable UI errors, which don't seem to be engine-breaking at the current time though.

Rectangle selected:

Other selected:
Image

Expected Result
The rectangle tool shouldn't behave in this way and work just like any other tool. (No mouse locking and buggy UI.)

Operating System and Service Pack
Win 7 SP1

Construct 2 Version ID
r245+ (beta)

@Ashley Could you please look into this and fix it in or before the next stable update.

I've noticed the grayed out "Add Frame" happening at other times as well.
