switching between two tilemaps in editor

Get help using Construct 2

Hi,

i dont know if this is a bug or just me not knowing how to use the program :D

anyway, when im using two tilemaps in one layout, each on a different layer, how can i change the tilemap that i want to draw on in the editor?
it seems to me i should click the tilemap that i want to work with in the objects tab and then change to the tilemap tab, but that doesnt work most of the times (but sometime it does, so im confused)
i made an example capx with only two tilemaps in it and its still like descriped :?

Edit: Ok, i now get it, i have to click on the real map object on the screen to get the wright tilemap in the tilemap tab;)

It can be a bit tedious in my opinion, but you could lock the other layer you are not working on and maybe hide it.

@ashley, could you maybe change that in next version? so you get the wright tilemap in tilemap tab when clicked on the chosen tilemap in the objects tab ?

Ashley described (I don't remember where) a good method for this :
- name your different Tilemaps depending on their utility (Collision, Terrain, Buildings, ...)
- select the right one from the Z-order bar
I tried it multiple times and it's a lot easier.

Oh yeh sorry I forgot that whole Z-order bar. Never used it before :) that works better.
