Instance Variables no longer accessable

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Fri Sep 21, 2012 12:43 am

I must be doing something wrong, but I can no longer access "Instance Variables". When I select an object, and click on "Instance Variables", nothing happens, no window/dialog box opens, nothing.

I have tried to access this through the projects bar (right click on object, select "Instance Variables") in case it was my mouse acting up, and still nothing.

All that happens is the ADD/EDIT turns blue (as if selected) for a second, then turns grey.

All other parameters (like add behavior) etc work fine.

I even tried creating a family, and guess which parameter was NOT accessible: FAMILY INSTANCE VARIABLES! Family Behaviors (fine), Family Effects (fine).

Now, for the real head scratcher - this will not work on ANY caproj or capx files. NOT EVEN THE EXAMPLE files will allow me to add/edit "Instance Variables"!

Any ideas? I even uninstalled and re-installed the latest construct2.

I will keep hunting around for a fix. Maybe something in the preferences? I was happily creating stuff, doing tutorials, all was fine util now.

ONLY thing I can think of is the window is opening "off screen" somewhere. I was using two monitors a couple of days ago, now laptop only. Also was using USB mouse, now using track pad on laptop (on vacation, working on my game! lol) - so maybe it's something with that?

I'm sure I'm screwing up, but really, why that ONE parameter!?

Thanks!!!

No idea what could've happened, but as a general missing-window fix, try the Reset Dialogues option under Preferences. Hope that works!

THAT WORKED!!!!!

Thank you SULLY!!!

I suspected something like that but had no idea how to go about looking for a solution. "Reset Dialogues" worked like a charm!

Thank so much.
