Its a real pain that lists can't store all attribute types unlike AS3- actor is especially needed. Also Game attributes should store all types too.  I know that would probably be an enormous task can versions be gradually including more types please.

They can store any types, just not in the UI configuration.  To add actors to a list you need to use blocks.

Shouldn't that be documented in Stencylpedia- it specifically says list items can only be text, numerical or bolean.

Also is it going have problems if I combine it with another type in a list?  Can you an actor put in Game Attribute?

Yes, lists can contain multiple data types.

Including list game attributes?  Any problem with using the 2D list extension for multiple types.

You can use game attributes to contain many types. But it won't work if you save and load.
