Do you prefer "Not equal to" or inverted "Equal to"

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Mon Apr 11, 2011 9:36 pm

I just noticed that all this time, I've been completely ignoring the former in favor of the latter. I guess it's easier for me to differentiate between "Equal to" and inverted "Equal to" at a glance because of the red symbol, when I'd otherwise have to look closely for the "Not".

So I randomly got curious -- which one do you guys tend to use? :)

When create new condition - Not equal
When copy existing condition - invert

I always use inverted not equal to. It's more visually consistent with other conditions that can't be compared with "not equal to."

Oh yeah!
I use this one all the time.
+ Sprite: [negated] On collision between Sprite and Sprite
-> Sprite: Set collision mode to None
Then sometimes I use this one:
+ Sprite: [negated] Sprite: Pick one at random
-> Sprite: Place in front of Sprite
But my favorite is:
+ Sprite: [negated] Sprite: Pick closest to:.x,.y
-> Sprite: Set position to object Sprite (image point 0)

I prefer the signs rather than the words.
