Ctrl+Left/Right in expressions

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Well I want to say that this is not the best shortcut to switch event wizard/parameters dialog.

Using Ctrl+Left/Right usually make you jump very fast between words and now in C2 it does something different which I've noticed makes my work a lot slower. Ctrl+Shift+Left/Right is not the same, cause of that you have to press more keys to get what you want. I think You should really find a better shortcut for changing event wizard/parameters dialog.

Alt+Left/Right maybe? It does not do anything in C2 (not that I know) and as far I can remember it's used in quite many applications as a "go back/forward".shinkan2013-07-11 14:29:06

@Ashley @shinkan this happens to me quite often and indeed it's quite annoying when you press CTRL + LEFT/RIGHT to cycle through the expressions but it will pop back to previous window.

As shinkan suggestion i'd prefer:

CTRL + LEFT/RIGHT = cycle through words/expression (just like standard editing shortcut)

ALT + LEFT/RIGHT = Go back / forward the dialog

As someone who uses keyboard shortcuts as much as possible, I support this suggestion.
