construct on tablet pc UI enhancement

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Feb 04, 2015 2:50 pm

Has anyone (if possible) made the ui for construct more tablet/pc friendly?

I'm finding using it on my windows 8 tablet pretty tedious - the menus and buttons are too small for a 10 inch screen

You can adjust the size of the whole UI in the windows by type "Make items larger" in Windows search.
But, it will come with a bug only found in Construct 2, which is some button just disappear but it will appear again if you hover your mouse cursor over it.
example: Button in action or condition windows.

holy crud! it was a small difference but it made enough difference to be more accurate when using Construct on a touch screen.

thanks so much :D

Do you use construct on a touchscreen?

I am finding I need to use my touchscreen docked in a keyboard in order to use construct fully. I remember seeing ashley saying somewhere that its hard to get the touchscreen actions properly....if you do use construct with a touchscreen, have any suggestions for using it easily?

For example, I am finding I cannot create a global variable easily with just the touchscreen unless I copy and paste a previous global.


EDIT: I can now press CTRL and tap the screen to right click. still looking for a solution to right click without the keyboard but this gets me further along (used autohotkey)

I'm using C2 with Surface pro 3 and Windows Pc with pen tablet,
both of them have pen and have a problem with the right click button.
When I want to do the right click I have to do it with pen, and here is how to do it.
1 hover the pen over the screen.
2 pressed and hold the right click button.
3 click and drag on the screen while holding the right click button.
4 release the right click button on wherever you want to do the right click.

Just installed Construct2 on my Teclast Air II. Runs very well but I have the right click trouble. Any tips on this without a pen?
