Thanks for the new enlarge\shrink atlas option that keeps parts where they should be, definitely something I wanted for some time now. 8-)

Any chance for a future update to be able to move a region and it's mesh at the same time to reorganize our atlas however we like? I know repacking can do it, however it'd be nice to have manual control over this that doesn't involve editing the png in an art program, then remaking our meshes.

Sounds like a great idea! Will investigate and look into it as well :)

This feature does not work correctly (at least for me anyways). It tries to give things too many meshes if I hit okay to remesh- and if I just hit cancel to not remesh- my meshes do not line up with my art.

Hello,

This feature currently right now is meant to preserve the current rig ( no changes to your rig + regions in Rig mode ) while giving you additional atlas texture space. It will require remeshing of the atlas which means additional meshes might be generated depending on the artwork.
Will look into making it robust for future updates so it can also recognize and preserve current mesh settings in mesh mode.

Thanks

Update: Good news! This will be fixed for the next update :) Your mesh names and settings will be preserved ( for both custom, regular and poly meshes ) when enlarging/shrinking the texture atlas. No remeshing will be required in this case.

Cheers
