Sometimes it would be very useful to see an actors height and width in the design mode. For example if I put a block "create actor at x and y at front", choose an actor and then via right click get height and width (of the standard animation). When placing actors I almost always have to check for their size to know where to place them.
At least it would be nice to see the height and width in the actors tab.

I think just getting the width/height of an actor type's default animation might be a little too specific.

Perhaps these two additions would suffice?

1. Be able to open a resource quickly if it's the selected option in a design mode block (if you want to open it but don't want to use ctrl+o?)
2. A block to get the width/height of any animation of any actor type (including an option for the "default" animation, whatever that happens to be).

@Justin, interesting ideas, I would like to see them implemented because both additions would be really useful. But according to what KramerGames means, we could immediately see the width/height of any actor type's animation by showing such information in the bottom bar of the Collision tab, in this way:

Oh, I didn't even notice the last sentence in the original post. Yeah, that's a third suggestion then.

Whatever is the fastest way to see the width and height :-). I think it would be nice if it is already visible in the appearance tab.
