Is there shortcut for cycling through the frames?

Get help using Construct 2

I'm following the 'how to make a platform game' tutorial.

There are 144 frames in the tileset.
It's awkward to go back to the initial frame box and guess a number to find the right tile.

Is there shortcut for cycling through the frames?
(I see in the manual that you can ctrl+left/right to parse animations, but I don't see an equivelent for 'initial frame'.)

Thanks for reading.

I would go into the image/animations editor (double click the object, or right click in the objects bar and choose "Edit animations" or "Edit image") and take a look at the animations frame to see which frame I want (it will show all the frames, so the correct one should be easy to pick out)oosyrag2013-03-19 21:37:46

It can be helpful to arrange all of the tiles around the edge of the layout - each set to a different frame. It takes a while to set up 144 of them but it makes level building easier because you can easily find the one you're looking for and CTRL-drag to copy it onto the layout.
