Tile Picker shouldn't adjust tile sheet size to size of tile picker window


Sorry, I'm not really sure if this is really an 'issue' or more of a suggestion, but it does impede my use of tIDE somewhat; I feel that it would be a lot more logical if the tile picker would always display the currently selected tile sheet at the size the tile sheet has been created in (perhaps with a scroll-bar on the bottom or top, similarly how there is a scroll bar on the right side) to compensate for the window size of the tile picker being smaller than the tile sheet.

With the tile picker's current behavior where it will keep everything in literal indexed rows based on the width of the tile picker's window, often times I have to resize the width of tile picker so that it is the same width as the selected tile sheet, otherwise it becomes difficult to pick out specific parts of my tile sheet that I have drawn in a specific arrangement. This becomes cumbersome because this leads to an issue of display real estate being used up just to display my tile sheet.

You can already do this. It's the 3rd view option within the tile picker with tooltip:
View tiles in order of their source image configuration

The 1st view option is the one you've been using so far (that wraps the tiles over to fit the tile picker width). The 2nd view orders the tiles according to the most recently used first (and also wraps around like 1st view).
The 3rd view keeps the tiles in their original position within the tile sheet image and provides scrollbars as necessary, which I believe is more or less what you wanted :).

In that case, thank you for informing me of that, and sorry for wasting your time!
