    you can look to : here


    hi ,
    if the Dimension = 18x18 then why not make the movement of the position move with a 18px step in one time ?
    then it will be much easier :!
    ___________
    what if there is a chick box that will lock the steps :)-> so if I want it to be moved by 18px then it would be !
    I meant it to be linked to the Dimension value :)
    ____________

    1px in a click is so so frustrating thing !

    You know that you can manually enter the position coordinates?

    With a set of smilies all the same size, it's just a case of multiplying the coordinate each time.

    I agree it would be quicker, less time consuming only if all smilies on the sprite sheet are of the same dimensions.

    I spent about 30 minutes adding the smilies this morning using the sprite sheet (but that was me inserting all the text replacements, titles, path for 35 smilies) so I'm suspecting having movements in larger increments would save time, how much more time it would save I'm not sure.

    *thinks out loud* Perhaps a post in the tips and tricks with the coordinates would be a good temporary solution. I was about to submit that today but wasn't sure whether it would be beneficial to anyone.

    I think Kier said yesterday he was going to create a script for everyone to use.

    what about using the java script that used in the Croping the Avatar ?! to locate the Similes/Picture Coordinate ... and then the Full Pic will be displayed in one side so we can choice

    Stepping in increments other than one pixel is wrong unless your smilies are all the same dimensions.

    Why not show the whole sprite image below (or a large chunk of it) and overlay a box that is the same size as your dimensions. Allow dragging the sprite until your desired smilie is centered under the box. As you drag, automatically update the position inputs and the smilie display top right.

    Doesn't this also fall prey to the same problem though, not all smilies would have the same size and or aspect ratio.

    No, because the size of the box is defined by the dimensions you enter (or conversely, you could drag to resize the box and have that update the dimensions inputs).
