Edit Log - (user's last alteration)

In a complex layout, I find that sometimes I'll accidentally drag something or I won't know for sure if construct has acted in the way I was expecting

What would make this easier would be a message log of each action that the user has taken (eg.

Sample contents:
(Events) Move Group "Blah Group"
(Events) Delete line (54) - "When Red is overlapping blue"
(Layout) Move object <objectname> to (x2,y2) from (x1,y1)
(Events) [Line 12] Completely screw up action that previously worked

hey, this sounds good. Perhaps would be better as the history pallete in Photoshop that I absolutely love. Undo with description, yay!

Very good idea. The exact same thing happens to me sometimes and I wish I could see what happened.

I also agree.

I also suggest making a similar log for the last tick on a debug run... for the reason of EXE crashes.

If there was also a log file for that which recorded the events that have run or attempted to run for the current tick, it may help narrow down things that are causing instabilities in the runtime.
