    Hi Peeps,
    I'm sure I remember you were able to select a section of tiles and simply press delete to remove those tiles, this doesn't seem to be working for me in 2019.1.5f1. Am I remembering wrong or is this an issue? If the feature doesn't exist how would I go about removing loads of tiles from a fill?
    Thanks

    You could create a selection area of Tiles using the Pick tool from the Tile Palette, switch to the Erase tool and erase areas of Tiles using the Brush.

    The Brush does not erase Tiles using the Delete key, unless scripted to do so. They mainly work on mouse interactions with the Erase tool, have you tried that?

    Hello, if you want to remove only the Tiles that you painted with the Fill brush, you can select a blank Tile in your Tile Palette with the Fill Brush, then click on the area with the Tiles you want to remove. All matching Tiles should be removed, like you are painting with the Fill brush with a blank Tile Asset.

    If you want to Erase a big area with the Erase brush, you can select it (shortcut key is D), and drag and hold it over a big area in the Tile Palette. Then it'll be larger and you can erase a bigger area at once on your Scene.
