Extend Touch plugin

Touch plugin (and Mouse plugin too) desperately needs settings:

  • Don't click through objects
  • Ignore invisible objects
  • Ignore invisible layers

Absolutely anyone who used Touch plugin encountered this problem: if you tap the object, you also tap every tapable object that is beneath. It's even more sinister when you have tapable objects on different layers. Even if the layer is invisible, you tap everything on it. And you have to come up with one of the silly workarounds to avoid that. Like, check if the layer is visible, which means you must not rename layers or move tapable objects between layers since then.

I attached some of the quotes of people using these workarounds

    This is a good idea.
    For Simplicity, may I suggest.

    • Enable / Disable as an Action instead.

    Properties:

    • Use Mouse Input
    • Touch Through
    • Visible Only

    Anyway, nice idea!
    This will surely be convenient for everyone. And not even confusing for beginners.

    I have suffered with this for so long. This is one of the most needed features.
