Thanks, I'm glad it's proving useful. That was the main reason I produced it, I was thinking of starting a second project but the hassle/hard-work of creating screens etc put me off from even starting. Yes, feel free to copy it as you please. I was thinking that perhaps it could be hosted as a resource on Denial when it stops getting updated.

The UI layout lends itself for a 4:3 display, which I would recommend using more of the horizontal landscape for more commonplace wide aspect displays. I can zoom my Linux Chrome browser only to 125% (150% on a 16:10 display requires a little bit of panning up/down), with quite a bit of unused space to the right.
Yes, I was thinking about that. Perhaps the whole area below the screen view which isn't used constantly could be moved to the right as a second tab interhangeable with the character view and consequently the screen enlarged. Let me have a think....

This might be alleviated by the proposed measure above or have I missed your point?

Yes, a bug. Noted!

Hmm OK. Not sure why, surely the VIC's colours are fixed?
[edit: OK, I think I get what you mean, I thought you meant that you wanted to pick an arbitry 32 bit colour. You want a 16 square grid with the defined colours in it?] - Perhaps for the character colour, I'm not sure about the others as you tend to decide what they should be at the begining of the project and leave them alone after.

Sorry, but have to disagree here , I often use Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V for a copying a single character from one place to another. Agree that they should be inactive during draw, paste inactive when nothing in the copy buffer, undo when nothing to undo etc, but didn't get round to that level of polish.
