Image editor: show mouse coordinates?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Just a small suggestion:

When editing animations in the image editor, could we have the mouse coordinates shown as they are when working with a layout?


I've just been editing the collision polygons for a couple of animations, and knowing the actual coordinates of the mouse would be a real help in getting things to line up properly.

Thanks! jbadams2012-03-14 06:49:45

...and a quick related suggestion -- could we possibly get an option to "view collision polygons" when working with a layout in the editor, which would overlay each object with a transparent outline of it's collision polygon?

This might help to debug problems where the collision polygon isn't exactly where you think it is -- it would certainly have made my current situation a lot easier to figure out at a glance, as I needed to line up the collision polygons of a number of objects, and it wasn't immediately obvious based on the image of the objects exactly where that was.

I hope this isn't perceived as rude, but I'm just going to give this topic a single bump, because I think it may have dropped off the first page without being seen by @Ashley

Sorry for the lack of response, both points now on the todo list.

This reminds me of something I had on my mind earlier. In CC you could place the hotspot/image points by entering X and Y coordinates instead of clicking. Is that going to come back in the C2 image editor?
