Hi everyone,

it appears that mouse_exited isn’t recognized when exiting a Button while holding the mousebutton (or finger on a touchscreen…) pressed. Is there any way to do this?

Seems like it’s a known issue. See here:

There are some suggested work arounds in this thread:


Thanks (again) Jgodfrey!

I couldn’t manage any such work around yet, tried combinations with Area2Ds (which recognize mouse-exits, only not if they overlap buttons!) and whatnot, so I’ll keep trying. It’s so weird that this happens, I only wonder why? This seems so essential.
