Hey guys!
I was looking for some way to add a lot of frames in a SpriteFrame without had to do it one by one, and then a realize that Godot already let you do that by multi-select files, but, for some reason, i can’t do that. I try select one and push Shift and the down or up arrow and i try to use the mouse, but nothing happens. I even try in 1.1 and Mono, but nothing.

Why this is happening?

Godot version: 3.2.3
SO: Windows 10 (1803) (64-bits)

The system I’m on ATM is running Win 10 64-bit and Godot 3.2.1.

However, I can multi-select image files (in the Godot FileSystem panel) and drag them into the Animation Frames panel of my AnimatedSprite using typical methods. That’s either:

  • Mouse-select the first item in a range and then shift-select the last item in the range
  • Ctrl-click to select any number of non-contiguous items

So, it would seem that:

  • You’re not doing it right, or…
  • There’s something peculiar about your system and/or setup, or…
  • There’s something wrong with the multi-select in 3.2.3

Man, thanks you very much! I would never have guessed.

I’m curious - what was causing the problem for you?

Well, i was not doing it right, i used to do it like you do in the Windows file system, you know, left click with the mouse and then try to select the others or click on one and push down meanwhile Shift is been pressed.
