[Solved] Click a sprite on the layout to select it?

Just started using Construct 2? Post your questions here

Why can I sometimes click a sprite instance on the layout and other times nothing I do will allow me to select any sprite? What is happening? I can't believe I have to ask this :oops:

Every other layer except for the one containing these sprites is hidden. I select the layer so it's the active layer, I still cannot select/highlight any instance on the layout. WTH?

Is the collision path set to fit the bounding box, sometimes when it creates it's own, it may be too small to click.

If so.. In the image editor, the bottom button on the left tool bar. With that selected, right click on your sprite and set it to the bounding box, and it will be easier to click.

The collision/bounding box is the full size of the 64x64 square sprite.

The layer was locked. Somehow I clicked the lock icon. Unbelievable. I must be tired :oops:
