Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

How can i lock a Layer so things dont move around?

Hello, I am using paper2d and i cannot seem to find a way to lock a layer so all the actors that are inside do not get moved by accident. It is impossible to create a 2D level without locking layers and i would like to know where is the lock button for each layer. Thank you.

Hi Roccinio,

There is no way to lock individual actors right now, but you can separate each of your layers out into separate levels and lock the entire level from the Levels tab. It should be fine to use always loaded levels in this manner, it won't have a noticeable impact on load time/etc...

Cheers, Michael Noland
