There should be a way to copy and paste, or duplicate, actors in Scene Designer. When doing so it should retain all values set in behaviors as well as all attached behaviors.

This could make adding a lot of movement sensors from Greg's cutscene pack a lot easier for me.

This is something I find myself needing frequently.

If only we had more developers...

This is harder than it sounds for the reasons that James pointed out. It's copying IC that makes this tricky, especially when accounting for undo/redo. I'm not even sure if IC alone if undoable/redoable today.

Is it possible to start off with tiles? I have found that sometimes it would be easier to copy/paste tiles as well.

The way things work today is that even a restriction would incur the cost of imposing that restriction. We either do it all or none at all.

Ahh sounds good. I had figured if it was started small, then perhaps someone else would have a better idea for extending it into actors as well. Well, maybe this can be a feature for 1.1 or 2.0.
