When you are in the editor, if you press L to load a file it will immediately
infom you that it will replace the current level and ask for confirmation.
This is annoying when you have just entred the editor or have just saved the
level. It should avoid that prompt when nothing has changed.
When exiting the editor, if there are no unsaved changes then again there is
no need for confirmation.
There should be a relatively easy way of editing a level that was shipped with
the game. kgoldrunner does this well. Some way of just pressing a key while
playing the game to jump to the editor for that level would be good.
When in the editor there should be a help screen describing what the meanings
are of the different types of tile.
The editor should support user generated campaigns and automatically assign
level numbers to new levels. kgoldrunner is a good example of how to do this.
