Feature wish: Search across all event sheets in a project

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Jul 20, 2016 3:46 pm

Maybe this has been asked for several times already I dunno. But now that my project is starting to get a whole heap of event sheets it's become a chore to search through them all when I need to find obscure stuff to fix.

Could we have this in C2?

Please?

I didn't know about that. That's super-useful, thanks for the tip!

But my problem is a little bit different; I have some sprites that get duplicated when they shouldn't be on new layouts. It's all a bit weird and seems to have started happening out of the blue. It's probably something I've done *somewhere* that I forgot about but I can't do a search for these sprites except by going through each event sheet one by one.

So I'm thinking a more comprehensive search function would help make debugging a lot easier, at least for larger projects.

I second this. I did something the other day, where I got sick of typing out this long group name so I changed the group name to be shorter - then had to find every reference to it across about 12 event sheets. I never knew the search feature was limited to only a single sheet until that time.

Oh I see. In that case +1 to your request, especially since it was asked from Scirra several times.
