:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


When generating random maps in the scenario editor, sometimes I need to click the Generate Map button twice in order for a map to generate. This button should generate a map every time I click it. Instead the first click makes the button appear visually depressed. A second click then is required to generate the map. This only occurs when the mouse cursor does not leave the button between mouse clicks.

This is an important workflow for creating and testing random map scripts, especially those used in tournaments. There is a simple but annoying workaround of clicking the button twice or moving the cursor out of then back into the button.

The map should generate for each click.

:point_down: ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.

See the Generate Map button in the lower left. It’s visible when selecting the “Map” tab and using the Random Map option.
