Is this incompatible with the 8 Direction behavior? I currently am using the 8 direction behavior to do a simulated left/right movement, but also need jumping action.

I added in the Platform behavior, but the sprite doesn't "jump" at all.

One can use the action "Set vector Y" from the 8 direction behavior.
Make sure to set this value to negative so the object will jump up.
It's time for me to return the favor :)

Just use the Platform Behavior it's much better for controls get rid of the 8 control thingy.

The Platform Behavior doesn't work for what I'm trying to do. I have a character that is hanging from objects and "jumps" from one object to the next, so the character is never standing on a solid.

Put physics behaviors on the player and use Impulse at angle to crate a jump effect.
