I can't really think of a use for one-off characters right now, but Lazy Devs floated the idea of making a little editor for them in his recent video and that seemed like a fun short project, and I'd never done anything with GUI elements before.
- Meant to be used offline.
Not all features will work off the BBS but you can use the basic functionality.
- Multiple persistent slots for editing.
Really it's just a page of the spritesheet you're editing.
- Per character Undo/Redo
This is limited to 32 levels of undo per character but there's no particular reason it should be. Basically like the Pico-8 sprite editor (plus Rotation) though I didn't feel any need to implement the more complex drawing things for the 8x8 monochrome format.
- Flip, Rotate, and Shift
With some keyboard shortcuts you can see in tooltips. Shifting uses the dir buttons.
- Copy/Paste One Off Character Strings
That's the whole point of it. There's a toggle to use hex or binary, but just use hex because "binary string" doesn't really make any sense; if you have an empty row you're going to have \0's in the string and no string workflow is going to enjoy that; afaict you really can't even paste them into a cart which seems like the #1 thing you'd want to do; just use hex.
Since you're going for the gold in this, @cheepicus, and yes it does look good. Could you add an optional grid, please ? Just might make use of this since it has slots to organize your work including undo feature.
And yes, I saw the binary was not working so I chose Hex for my own tweet²
