Your question looks for clarity to diagnose something particular that I’m doing wrong, but I really intended to just communicate that I am having trouble navigating altogether, but at its most extreme I’m in a view where I’ve completely lost sight of what I’ve already built.
So far as being “lost,” I suspect it comes through poor navigation, I find myself either far away - or looking in the complete other direction (too high, too low, etc.) of the level I’m trying to design. This happened in past courses by playing through the level and falling, exiting the play mode and the editor being where the player left off - far from the level design. That’s probably the most extreme case.
This doesn’t happen for the instructor, who can whiz about levels with a strong understanding of the tools of the editor that this course hasn’t gone over yet. There might be keyboard shortcuts or menu functions I’m just not aware of beyond the initial tutorial in the first section.
So, kind of regardless to the experiences of being “lost” - I’m seeking additional resources that I can use to better understand navigation in the editor.
