oh wait we also need a 90° tile rotate tool, that doest add another tile to the palette, and doest mess with the tile palette

also just noticed the export selection being FINALLY added, i love this program even more now.


How do I use the Beta version? I bought on Steam. In steam, I right click on properties, click on the Beta version and it asks for a code. – Really need that dark theme provided in 1.3.

There is no need to insert a code to select the beta (you can just ignore the code field). I hope it helps!
