Hi Bjorn. I sometimes make objects in the tile collision editor invisible (mostly for testing) and I noticed there is no way to select these objects once they are hidden so I can make them visible again.

For now, I just edit the TSX file by hand so no big deal but thought you'd like to address this eventually all the same. Thanks.

Hey Seanba,
you can name them and find them via the object view. That might be a little more comfortable then working with the tsx. However I also feel it is a little unhandy sometimes. But I also don't really know what would be a good way. Maybe a layer setting to show invis objects??

@X-Ray-Jin The problem in the Tile Collision Editor is that it does not have an Objects view. Hiding the objects is naturally available in the Properties view, but once deselected there is indeed no way to access these objects anymore.

Do you think you could live without this feature? Cause one way of fixing this would be to avoid showing the "Visible" checkbox in the Properties when an object from the Tile Collision Editor is selected.

On the other hand, we'll have the same problem when introducing locking of individual objects (#828), since they would no longer be selectable either. It would be unfortunate to forfeit this feature in the Tile Collision Editor as well, so maybe we should indeed look for a mode where interaction with invisible / locked objects is possible.

@bjorn Yeah, sure, removing the visible checkbox seems like a quick and easy way to fix this.
