Textures Window

This window displays all available textures in their folders or WAD files. Texture folders and WAD files can be added and managed in the Presets Window. The images will come up below the respective folder or WAD bar and can be scrolled by the scroll bar at the right. If you click at a folder or WAD bar, the folder or WAD will be opened or closed. The folder window can be changed in size by dragging it at the lower edge. The Bookmarks window contains a set of texture favorites that can be saved or loaded in the Presets Window.

By double clicking a texture, it will be attached to the object selected at this time. The Object bar shows the texture of the currently selected block; the Texture bar display the currently selected texture. If you close a folder or WAD or move the mouse out of the project window, the last assigned texture remains visible in this window. Clicking right at a texture will open a pop up menu (see below).

The size of the scroll bar slider can be adjusted by editing WED's configuration file data\options.scr with SED, and changing the TV_SBSIZE value.

Add Texture

Remove Texture

Removes a texture from the selected WAD.

Rename Texture

Renames a texture in the selected WAD. The texture name must consist of not more than 15 letters, digits, and underscore. For the naming convention, see Texture Types.

Add to Bookmarks
