How do I duplicate layout but not the event sheet

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sat May 02, 2015 3:01 pm

Hi every body.
Just wanted to know if there's any way I can duplicate a layout but the new duplicated layout will have it's own event sheet? When I duplicate a layout the new one will still have the "original" event sheet of the "parent" layout. I have a game which consists of a number of layouts. generally the layouts have lots of similarities and slight differences. I don't want to repeat all the process all over again and again every single layout. Help will be greatly appreciated.

1) Duplicate Layout - Right click on your Layout in the Projects pane and select Duplicate

2) Change Event Sheet to Correct Event Sheet - Layout properties --> Event sheet --> Drop down to which event sheet you would like to control that layout.

Thanks guys for your great help. But what I meant was that I do need the original layout event sheet because it has the most events that will be common through the rest of other layouts, but I want to make slight changes in each new event sheet to match fit with the new level. Is that possible? also when I try to change the name of the new layout it changes the name of the original layout to the new one. how to solve this issue? sorry for such torrent of questions!
