Summary0022092: Suggestion: DnD Editor: Swap icons for Pressed and Down events for mouse and keyboard to make difference clearer
DescriptionIn the list for selecting event types, the "Key Down" event has a very different icon for "Key Pressed" and "Key Up" (which have the same icon with an up/down arrow). This makes it clear that "Key Down" is for when the key is being held, and Pressed/Up is a single-time event fired once.

In the D&D editor "If Key Pressed" and "If Mouse Pressed" have a different icon from "Down/Up". This makes it seem like "Pressed" is for the event which is fired multiple times, and "Down" is a mirror of "Up" and is fired a single time.

It would make things clearer if the D&D editors icons were similar to the event icons, in that "Pressed" and "Up" were mirrors of each other , and "Down" had a separate icon. Keeping the existing art, but swapping the icons for "Down" and "Pressed" would make their purposes clearer.
