2017-04-23 Cut, Copy and Paste

I wanted to add copy & paste to Gridmapper. But how? With access to the clipboard? And what kind of data would I use? I decided to leverage the existing text export and import functionality.

I wanted to use something like the selection on typical graphical user interfaces. Shift and the arrows keys extends the selection. But I have used Shift for other things:



I’m on a macbook pro and I can no longer change floors. alt+arrows just draws the floor. Tried every button on the keyboard. Please help.

Sadly, I’m away from my Laptop for the next four days. I hope you can figure something out!

If all else fails, you can use an older version, e.g. 1.0,1.1,1.2, or 1.3.

I just tried it on a MacBook Pro using Chrome, Firefox and Safari – and it worked as intended. Can you describe the exact problem you’re having, the software you’re using, the key’s you’re pressing, what you’re seeing, what you expected to see instead, all the stuff that might help me figure out what the problem is?

For some reason I get the same problems with the older version, even though it’s shift+arrow key that switches floors...how odd.

So I’m on Safari 10.1.1 on a Macbook pro. I used to be able to go up or down floors by holding down left/right shift key and pressing the up and down arrows. Now when I do shift+arrow on versions 1.1-3 (alt+arrow on most recent build), it starts to draw floor tiles instead of switching floors, which effectively limits me to building one-floor dungeons.

I think you must be confusing Gridmapper with some other application. Shift arrows never changed levels (”floor”). To change levels, use the z key to go down and the y key to go up.

Oh god, I’m an idiot. Thank you.
