Tile type information is lost when exporting with "Resolve object types and properties" #2023
I have a simple tileset and two defined object types, with some default properties - Creature, with
When exporting either a tileset on its own, or embedded within a map, if the resolve option (in the title) is not selected, each tile will have an exported property
I assume the expected behavior is that when the aforementioned option is selected, the
I've updated tiled to 1.2 from the Manjaro(x64) repo when it became available, not sure if any old information from the previous version might be conflicting with the new and causing this.
I apologize if this is the result of me not understanding the option.
Oh btw, this "Resolve object types and properties" currently only applies to the actual object instances. It does not currently copy properties from predefined types down to tiles with that type. So, while I guess the bug you reported is fixed, the expected behavior you described is not implemented yet.
In any case I don't think it's a good idea to actually remove the "type" field, but resolving the properties could be implemented. I agree it could be expected behavior, but I was hesitant to copy down properties for both tiles and objects, especially since this could lead to unwanted duplicate information in case of tile objects (which would already get all properties, so there would be no need to look at the properties set on their tile). Do you actually need the properties on the tiles?
