I have trouble getting the origin point tool in the image editor to align properly with the displayed mouse coordinates. I made some example images to illustrate:
Here's Mojar from Dotfighters. Say I want to place the origin point at the top left corner of his belt buckle. I know that my needed X/Y position is 9 pixels to the right of the top-left corner and 13 pixels down from it.
If I hover the mouse pointer at mouse coordinate position 9,13 and click then the origin point gets placed at the top-left corner of his buckle, like so:
All good so far. However, if I move the mouse pointer closer to the middle of the buckle and click then the origin point gets placed one pixel further down and to the right. But the mouse coordinates still stay at 9, 13, same as before:
This can be pretty aggravating when you're trying to align non-uniform frames in longer animation sequences and/or higher resolution pixel gfx. Because you never know if the origin point ends up in the right place when the mouse coordinates may be off by one pixel in each direction.
It would be great if we could get a fix for this.
