How do I zoom out to less than 10% in the layout view?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sat Apr 18, 2015 4:27 pm

In the Construct2 layout view it seems that zooming out is limited to 10%. Seems strange that Construct2 allows zooming in to 10000% but zoom out is limited to 10%. I'd like to go out to 1%. Is there any way of achieving this or would it be a feature request for Scirra?

I have very large layouts (500k+ square) and it is very difficult to design my levels with this zoom out restriction as I'm constantly having to scroll around the layout view to place tiled backgrounds/sprites in my level.

I'm developing a PC game which runs these large layouts fine at 60 FPS (I'm making extensive use of tiled backgrounds with a small number of sprites)

Any comments/suggestions appreciated. Haven't seen this raised in the past on the forums so I'm assuming there is an easy fix.

Margin options are default 500 or something you can make it 50000

As far as I can see increasing the margins adds space around the layout but does not improve the ability to zoom out any further than 10% in the layout view.

I'm not referring to the runtime scale rate options but the zooming option in the layout view when designing layouts (i.e. under the View menu option in Construct2).

I guess I'm stating the obvious:

It's not possible.

I can also understand why it's not possible, for zooming out to 1% would mean that everything les then 100 pixels in width and 100 pixels in height, would be invisible in the editor, which would not be very usefull..
I told my dentist I had trouble with my teeth and asked her to fix it without looking in my mouth..

True for smaller sprites, but for resizing and moving around tiled backgrounds it would be very useful. E.g. placing roads on a city map.

I hope someone from the Scirra team is reading this and considers allowing zoom out to at least 5% before development on Construct2 stops. It would make the process of designing large levels a lot easier.
