[FEATURE REQUEST] Zoom out further in layout editor

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Jul 21, 2015 6:37 am

This would actually be a big help for me for some of the overworld areas in my game. The find object thing would also be nice, though it isn't really as big as zooming out further.

Just adding my upvote to this - this is a much needed feature.

If the @Scirra Team has time to experiment with a front to back renderer then I'm sure they can find the 5 minutes it would take to extend the C2 editor zoom.

My current workaround for not being able to see the entire layout in the editor is to zoom out to 0.05 - 0.10 in runtime using layer scaling and then have my editor open side by side so I can more easily find/place objects in my layout.

A completely unacceptable and ridiculous workaround but until Scirra decides to address this, I don't see any other solution.

+1. Would be very useful to be able to zoom out further in editor. Moving and sizing large tiled backgrounds in large layouts is very challenging at the moment.

Would be handy to do this; running into the 10% limit in my current project.
Don't lose your work. Backup your game with Dropbox.

I think a minimap window would be a better option than just being able to zoom out more.

@EncryptedCow, at this stage in C2's life, I doubt we'll see a minimap. Though I'd love to be proven wrong.

@Scirra team, can we please get an official response to the zoom out request? It's a very minor and very reasonable request that would make life a lot easier for a lot of people trying to create something more than simple mobile games.

Yeah would be nice. Hopefully its not due to a technical limitation and can be adjusted easily.

I used to think that 10% was perfectly fine, until I started designing the entire layout for my game.
Being able to zoom out more would be very helpful, and I'd like to add my +1 to this being implemented.
If you were building a low res or mobile game the current zoom level would be enough, but the 10% limit feels a little cramped when building a larger pc game.
