Why is reloading required?
Stencyl sometimes needs a little help knowing that something's changed if you keep multiple resources open at once.
When can this happen? For example, suppose that you've added a new Group and want to add an Actor Type to this new group. You'll notice that the Group doesn't show up in the dropdown.
Here are a few other cases where this can happen...
- Adding/Removing Controls
- Addding/Removing Groups
- Adding/Removing most kinds of Resources
Generally speaking, reload a document if in doubt.
How to Reload
To reload a document, use the hotkey Ctrl-R (or *Command-R on Mac). If prompted, click the button that says Reload Document.
Alternatively, you can do this from the menu via File > Reload Document.
We understand that reloading is inconvenient. Down the road, we strive to eliminate the need to reload documents.Print Article Edit Article How to Edit an Article
This really helpful sometimes!!!
It's a little boring but nice way to keep Stencyl's usage under 90%!!!
