Hi,

In the Edit Scene Properties window, the tile height and width are greyed out when editing a previously created scene. Can anyone explain the reason why you can't edit these?

Because once you create a scene, you had already chosen tile width and height (and probably has already placed some tiles in your scene). Changing their dimensions could distort already placed tiles and cause problems. For example you placed one tile 24x24 with "spikes". Once you change tile dimensions to eg. 35x35 imagine, how could it impact already placed spikes.

Well I can understand that, but there are good reasons to be able to adjust tiles sizes. Sometimes I need to copy a scene with all the layer and their settings, with no tiles as I want to use a different tile size, or maybe I change my mind after already putting a lot of work into a scene.

You could go to the XML file for that scene and change it there, see what happens. I haven't tested it though.

Ok, thanks.
Hope it's not too late, but back up your games before attempting this.
