Construct 2 - Stange Image Editor Behavior & Mouse Locking

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
Editor issue! Can be reproduced using an empty project with a single sprite added to it.

Description of Capx
Empty project a with single sprite on a layout.

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  1. Open an empty project.
  2. Add a sprite object.
  3. Select the rectangle selection tool* > right click the animation frames pane > import frames > from sprite strip.
  4. Select an image to import
  5. Notice that you cannot click anywhere, however pressing escape still works (unnecessary mouse locking code?)

*This step is very important! 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 though.

Rectangle selected:
Image

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.)
