Feature: Move variables between EventSheets

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Apr 09, 2013 7:37 pm

[QUOTE=Arima] If you cut the global variable, then paste it in the other event sheet, all the deleted references conditions and actions will reappear. I agree it's terrifying though, and would still prefer some other method like copying the variable then pasting it removes it from its previous location instead. Or maybe the method the windows file manager uses for cut and paste, where the file is still in it's original location with reduced opacity until it's pasted, basically resulting in a move function. [/QUOTE] Ohh, thanks didn't know that

I'll see if I can add a right-click -> move variable to event sheet option, to make the experience less terrifying. :)

Please do so with instance variables as well. When a project gets a bit big, it's easy to later realize a variable should have been put in a family, but it's everywhere in the sheets - so annoying. ;)

@JoyfulDreamer: This has been more or less taken care of with the recent addition of the "Replace" feature in r123.

Be sure to check again the course of action Ashley depicts on how to replace instance variables to "family variables".

No it hasn't. There's no command to replace an instance variable; And besides, that is a right click menu specific to event sheets. I'm taking about a feature added to the variable creation window to relocate a variable.

Also, I couldn't find that tutorial you mentioned.JoyfulDreamer2013-04-16 18:32:58

I don't know if this is still an improvement to come, but thanks a lot for explaining that you could cut/past elsewhere and the events would come back. Still, terrifying. I agree twice if it's even possible.
