A long-standing bug (several versions) that prevents me from using Defold (the editor) is that on linux (elementaryOS which is Ubuntu 18.04), my mouse clicks through the UI onto whatever is below it, but only for some UI elements. This makes it quite literally impossible to even open a project.
Here’s a screencast of me trying to click on a tab in the editor, and my click registering in my browser (below the editor window) instead of in the editor: https://vod-edge.turbo.run/turkey3.mp4 (5MB)
Please look into this, I want to start to use this engine ^^. Happy to provide any further info you need.
