Problem Description
Bug related to interacting with Construct 2 using touch or stylus. Tap & hold for right clicking does not work in Construct 2. Either with touch or Stylus, anywhere in the software. I like using construct 2, on the go and do not always bring mouse/keyboard. In my point of view a software good for creating touch friendly games and apps should also be touch friendly. ;)

Bumping this issue, as it would help my workflow when I'm on the go and remove the need to use a 3rd party software just for right clicking with a stylus in Construct 2.

+1. I've been having the same issue since my Surface Pro 2.

What 3rd party software are you using to get the tap&hold to work @tunepunk? The lack of proper stylus support is preventing me from working just as a tablet.

@KENYONB This is the software I have to use to get right clicking to work with stylus. Adds an option for hover-right-cklick with the stylus button. It doesn't work for touch though, but enables it for stylus at least. I only use it for that purpose and only when working with Construct 2 but it does the trick.

This software adds a small little area on screen that can be used as a trackpad with mouse left and right click. Very customizable if you want to add your own buttons or shortcuts as well, so you can use this to simulate right click in Construct 2 when using touch.

Thanks @tunepunk I'll have to check these out. But I really hope the pen issue gets a permanent fix ;)

I use AHK (Auto hot key) to turn ctrl into right click with stylus. If you dont have a keyboard...well, not sure how you are using C2 to be honest lol

I'm using C2 on a Surface Pro 4 (Tablet), so i don't really use an external keyboard much. Most of the time i work with C2 lying down in the sofa, on the bed, sitting on my balcony, or when I'm out and about, LOL. I know, not very traditional, but i don't like sitting at a desk. Everything works perfectly and have a great workflow, only annoying thing is that I need a 3rd party software just to be able to right-click in C2.

It is actually a common issue across the board (other stylus') with multiple programs. I wish C2 fixed it, but yeah I get you.

I still don't know how you use C2 with no keyboard. I used a Surface Pro with C2, exact same usage, laying down on my belly lol

C2 is super easy with no keyboard, as you get suggestions of objects expressions and anything as you type. If you noticed when you are entering something in a field in the Event Sheet, there's a small transparent window close by, where you can pick objects with expressions, so you don't really have to type anything. And if you do, the screen keyboard is good enough. Everything is just a few clicks away, so that's why I like working with a stylus in C2.

I don't know if they had stylus in mind when they designed C2, but it's genious. Only flaw is the right click thingy.
