Event ordering bug

Report Construct 2 bugs here.

Post » Tue Mar 25, 2014 8:30 am

In the event sheet, when moving an event you cannot place it below an event that has subevents. This is a severe workflow annoyance that many people have grown accustomed to over the years, but would be nice to have solved one day!


Image
Normally you can drag an event below another event.



Image
In this situation, you cannot place the top event below the 2nd one.



Image
I do not want event 1 to become a subevent! Just a little more to the left!



Image
Also showing that I cannot place it to the left as a "top level event", it's being forced as a subevent, not what we want!



It is possible to do this nicely, photshop has done so for a while with it's layering system (with folders effectively being subevents).

indeed... it's very annoying. however it only occurs when you're trying to place something in the last line of the eventsheet.
You can't place neither events, nor groups in the last line when there is a subevent/subfolder in place.

you could, however, by default, when you start a new event sheet, just place a comment at the end, and leave it there forever. problem solved.

@Sargas, That doesn't solve the problem, it happens under every group, under every subevent, so unless you fill your entire sheet with empty events it will always be an issue.

well... thats weird. for me it REALLY does only happen on the last line =/
unless.... hang on a sec, gonna test it just to be sure.
ok, now i'm sure. at least for me, the problem is only present on the last line of the event sheet.

@alspal

oh, you're right. didn't think of that one.

So the bug is present in 2 places. at the end of the event sheet, and the end of every group.
@ashley should take a look at this eventually :D, hopefully it's a a minor problem and not something that requires a total rewrite of the entire program xD

Valid spot. My workaround has been to close the event/group and its sub-events and then to move the new event group above it so it maintains hierarchy - while they are collapsed, it is then easy to swap them around. Not ideal, but it stops me from going mad until it's fixed.

+1 to this issue, juggling the two bottom events is getting a little annoying.

Also, since we are on events - why aren't there any sensible keyboard controls for these? Keyboard left and right to close and open, pg up and pg dn to jump between top level events, home to move to parent event, etc. Always scrolling through the list, even with most things neatly grouped is a bit cumbersome.
