hi
i want to know if there is a way to draw canevas by mouse , because adding block by block is difficult and time consuming
if i can hold the mouse and draw on the background it would be nice and time saving
thanks

Do you mean in the layout editor, or in a game?

In the editor I will sometimes make a sprite the size of the window, and sketch my design onto it, so I can get an idea of where I will be arranging things. However I don't like images that big in the final game because they take so much memory on mobile devices.

If you mean in game, I would recommend the Canvas plugin.

Well, a new update came out since posting that, that has added tilemaps to Construct2. It may offer what you are looking for. I haven't installed it yet, but the description mentions drawing directly on the tiles.
