Jump-thru Stair-like bug

Report Construct 2 bugs here.

Problem Description
As we all know from the manual, Jump-thru does not support slopes, yet it does and that means trouble for the normal use..

Attach a Capx

Description of Capx
the capx shows some "Stairs" made out of jump thru, and a slpe with a jump thru, it is not supposed to be supported, however that is not the stair themselves the point, it is here to show how the bug actually works.
when you run off a platform, then come back quickly, you can sometimes climb back on it, I bet this phenomenon is due to the same effect that makes those stairs works, normally, you run up a jump thru, you should just fall inside it, here, you can climb those stairs (if that is not consistent enough, the slope should show you that this works).

This is a bug, as you should not be able to climb on a jump thru by running on its side (and slopes are not supported either, so you should just fall), this is troublesome when the player is falling off a jump thru but goes back quickly and climb on it back, sure there are workarounds, but using them is accepting the bug, which I cannot do.

Steps to Reproduce Bug
  • run up the stairs
  • run up the slopes
  • if you like testing it, set the max fall speed to something like 3 or 10, go off the jump-thru, wait so you are just a little off, then come back on it, that is the actual bug!.

Observed Result
stairs works, and you can climb back on a jump-thru

Expected Result
slopes and stairs not working, passing right by the jump-thru
