Bitmap Text Effects Are No Longer Accessible (But Still Work!)

I have some bitmap text objects with certain effects like drop shadows. Prior to 5.2.171, I was able to access these objects’ effects from the scene editor. However that is no longer the case as you can see in the below image:

Despite this, the objects still render their effects, even if I cannot open a menu and edit them in any way.

I am not sure if this was intentional, and if so why do the objects still render the effects? I hope this was not intentional, as I use them quite frequently in my game and found no issues with them for months.

Surely a bug, we will check and issue a bugfix release :slight_smile:

It is missing in a lots if not, every single object type.

→ I’ve seen the pull at the github, but it only specifies the fixes for BBtext, bitmap video and light objects, but it says nothing about sprites and tiled sprites

Maybe the web version hasn’t been updated yet, but you still can’t open the effect tab from the context menu (I tested with light objects, sprite and tiled sprite).

First you have to open anything on the object (like the behavior or variables tab) and then switch to the effect tab.

I am making this comment because its already almost 10 days since the pull has been merged and it is still bugged (I don’t know how github works so I think merged = already implemented and should be working)
