I was recently hired to do a tileset for a top down RPG and i'm attempting to use painter 12 to do this. I created a grid of 64x64 tiles (Canvas > Grid > Show Grid) and I need to be able to quickly and painlessly use the selection tool to grab separate tiles in the grid. Even with the "snap to grid" option the selection tool still doesn't like to play nice. This is a huge problem as I need to be able to easily copy/paste these tiles.
In the documentation i see that the selection tool can work with "snap to guide" but how can i make my grid my guide? When selection (Canvas > Guide > Show Guide) nothing shows up.
Any thoughts on how I can resolve this?
edit: while attempting to create ruler guides painter crashed on me. Yikes! although as soon as it quit it prompted me for an update, so lets hope that bug was fixed in whatever update was just released. I think out of my 8 hour work day today, I've spent 4 just trying to figure this out.
