Suggestion for the BG Designer and Character Designer

I think that there should be a fill tool. Perhaps it looks for adjacent tiles or pixels of the same type as the tapped one and it replaces them all with the currently selected color/tile.

Yes, and I have some more ideas for the Designer tools, but at the moment I’m not working on them.
I would change the interface and use more menus to fit more options.
Also I would like to move the palette editor to the Char Designer so you could draw with actual colors.

Yeah, good idea.

The only major addition to character desiger would be adding a feature similar to background designer... that is, to be able to select more than one square for the copy paste feature....

So, if i design a 4x4 block, and want to make 15 copies to later tweak the copies, i have to do an agonizing 60 copy pastes.... only having to do one 4x4 copy and 15 pastes would be wonderful...

I'd suggest a bit shift command too, where you select the range of characters that was8bit suggested, then tap the shift command to move the selection over by one row or column.

Timo, what are your other ideas? I might take this up as my next project after the pxl library. I think these side projects are helpful to learn the language and system!
