Hi,

I created an attribute called pet, it doesn't show in the drop down list when I choose Attribute in the block. I tried reading up on attributes in the stencyl encyclopedia, but the attriit only tells me the types of attributes that I can create. So I'm not sure why the Actor Type attribute I created could not be shown, only Actor attribute can be shown.

"Actor" and "Actor Type" are two different things. "Actor" referes to actors created during gameplay. "Actor Types" are the ones you create within Stencyl's work space.

Read this article: http://www.stencyl.com/help/view/what-are-actors/
And specially read "Actor Types vs Actor Instances."

I'm able to create an Actor attribute, but how do I set the actor attribute to the actor that I want? When I go under Actor Settings, I don't see that I can set it to a particular actor, mainly last created actor, self, etc, because I want it to be set to a particular actor that is already on the scene.

This should explain what you need to do: https://youtu.be/R7CB7xwoLyo?t=211
I do recommend you watch the whole thing do, to learn a bit more on each attribute type.

This video tutorial is actually really good, thanks! The explanation is good too. Should include this under the Encyclopedia.
