[Change Request] Zoom to Mouse

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Apr 19, 2013 6:31 pm

Hello @Ashley,

I wanted to just put in a request to see if there is any way to update the zoom in/out of the main canvas/layout area to be mouse aware. That way if I have the mouse centered over a particular object and I use the ctrl + scroll it will zoom to the point I am pointing at with my mouse. Otherwise, it tends to take zooming then scrolling, rinse, repeat, to get zoomed in on a particular object. This would be a great time saver when working on large canvases and needing to zoom in on specific objects.

If there is already a method for this, please let me know. Thanks again for all the hard work. The past few months have seen an amazing amount of new features implemented.

Create an object with scrollto on the mouse.x mouse.y. Destroy it when the zooming is done.

@stctr - I believe he's referring to the editor only, and I agree - it would be super handy.

@stctr I mean during editing the project, not during running of the game. This would be in Construct2 while working on layouts.

Besides I'd also like what you said, to make a horizontal movement using for example "shift + mouse wheel" ... I use it in Inkscape and I feel comfortable.
