Tile Mapping Settings

When creating tile maps you can set up certain options in the settings dialog that can be found in the menu tile mapping

When creating a new tile map project from an image then you can modify tile with and height, otherwise these edit fields are disabled.
Tile mirroring will make the tile map engine to recognize mirrored tiles. Instead of adding a new tile that is just a vertical and/or horizontal mirror of a tile already present in the tile library, this existing tile will be displayed mirrored.

You can attach other projects to the current one to have them share the tile library. This is necessary if you have tile maps of different sizes. Within a single project all maps have the same size because all frames must have the same size. When attaching projects please always add dependent projects to the leading project! This is because the dependent project will get the color palette of the one it is attached to!
