Improvement Suggetion - Layouting

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Mar 09, 2014 6:38 pm

Hei there,

I have a small but powerfull improvement suggestion.

In Visual Studio in the designer i have those buttons (see sreenshot) which help me with layouting. They have alot of use by making everything smooth and oriented.

If you could build this, that would be nice :)

I really like Construct2

Best regards

There are already a number of ways to align objects in the layout view.

From the manual entry:
The right-click menu in the layout view also provides some alignment tools under the Align sub-menu. These allow you to quickly space objects equally or align objects along their edges. When aligning, the objects are aligned to the particular object you right-clicked.

You mean in the right-click > align> edges > direction drop-down menu?

A set of floating toolbars would make everything much more simple and faster to handle around. Actually tools and customizable toolbars for all functions would be much more efficient for manipulating stuff.
...but this is mostly psychological.
