Adding Tile Sprites with Chromebook - Nightmare! Have you found any workaround?


I’m running a game development club for elementary school students. They all have the personal Chromebook, so it’s natural, that the students use them in the club. GDevelop web version is used.

The problem I have confronted is not the problem of GDevelop, but the problem of Chromebook OS. Below are the screenshots from Windows and Chromebook, when adding a new sprite and trying to choose image file(s):

As you can see, Chromebook image preview cuts quite a lot from the top and from the bottom. Especially when trying to add tileset images, this feature is very irritating.

If you right-click the image and select image info, you are able to see the whole image. However, it’s very fustrating to open all images one by one to find the correct tile.

Have you found any workaround for this? I haven’t found any settings in Chromebook, where to prevent the edge cutting.

Thank you in advance,


Maybe you can try renaming the tiles like (for image 1 it could be Farm grass bottom right)
the names can get long but you will know by the name.
I use this method it’s easy to understand

This is very good workaround! Sometimes the amount of different tiles and combinations is quite massive, but with logical naming principles it might be doable. Thank you! :slight_smile:

Glad i was helpful! >_<
