Shape2D not being displayed in the editor

Godot Version



I attached a script to the ‘Area2D’ node, so that i can @export a Shape2D type variable.

The problem i am experiencing, is that in the editor the Shape2D area does not appear.

I am refering to this square thingy as Shape2D.

For my Area2D node, no matter what i select, no such area appears in the editor. Sometimes, if i switch between tabs, the area magically appears, but i cannot in any way modify it, no red dots on the corners are there.

How can i fix this?

It won’t show up like this, the visualisation only works for collision shapes, you would have to write your own gizmo to make it work
