For questions about using Classic.

[quote="dfyb":3q1mtcl0]i've been dragging up and i've found that my change doesn't stick. i can drag the second layout up to the top and it acts as intended -- it's listed first (though it still loads the engine layout when testing it). but if i save and restart construct, it's back to its original order. i've also tried adjusting the order of the event sheets, but they seem to have no effect. i'm on a vista machine right now -- i'll test at home later today to see if i get the same problem.[/quote:3q1mtcl0]

Strange. If you do it with a new .cap does it do the same thing?

(Also, why does SourceForge keep logging me out? I check "remember me" every time I log in but it never does :x Argh! /rant)

not all the time. i made two new .caps trying to troubleshoot this. one had same problem, but another actually worked -- unfortunately, i don't know what caused this disparity. pretty sure i always dragged layouts upward though, rather than dragging the first layout down.

i'll be home soon, and i can see if my XP machine performs any differently.

Hmm, maybe this is a Vista bug. If you change the order of the layouts and it starts on the wrong layout, does it still do it when you save and reload the .cap? If so, can you send me one of these .caps that runs layouts in a different order to the way the project bar shows them?

well i can, but whenever i load the .cap, it returns to the original layout order -- it's as if i never changed the order.

*change layout/event order around
*save
*close (edit: to specify - i closed the layout using the x under the top bar)
*open

and this is what i see

well i found an easy bandaid fix... i do the 'start of layout, change layout' thing, with another condition to confirm it's the right layout before switching.

still not having any luck changing the order of the layouts though..

Verified: Layouts are reordered to their original sequence after saving and then loading in both Vista and XP. This makes it impossible to switch the order of your "levels" during editing.

After this problem is fixed, I think it would be great if the order of the event sheets was also rearranged automatically with the order of the layouts to save users confusion during the overall editing process.
