My Feature Requests

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Sat Jun 06, 2009 12:49 pm

Hey all, I'm a fairly big newbie at Construct, but I have a few requests anyway. Just some ideas that I think would greatly improve the program. I'll do my best to do my research, and not post lots of already existing ideas. So, here goes.

1) An appearance category for the Box object (basically the same as with the Sprite object, with skew and invisible on startup)

2) An incremental save option for easier versioning. That is, appending a number to a save file, and every time you choose the "Save incremental" option, it saves another version with a higher number, e.g.

myproject_0001.cap

--->Incremental Save

saves as

myproject_0002.cap

At the same location.

3) Separating path histories. I'm not sure of the technical terms for all this, but when you go to save a file, you get taken to the last path you took a file from, e.g. importing a graphic or sound. I rarely, if ever, will have the desired .cap location at the same path as the last graphic/sound I imported. It would be good, then, to have individual path histories for different operations.

4) Runtime zooming. This may be already implemented, but for the life of me I can't find it. So I don't always have to see a 1:1 scale view of my layout. Would be handy with options like Show All, or Show Layout.


All for now but not forever.

i think you may have meant edittime zoom in construct. if so, this is also possible, though im not sure how to do it without my logitech mouse, which has a separate zoom wheel

yeah, I know, but this part:

sounded like he might have just thought it was called runtime, but meant edittime
...
or something

can we get an adittional keyboard shortcut for edit-time zooming?

notebooks do not have scroll wheels. Typical shortcut is ctrl-plus and ctrl-minus

Agreed even though most note books have that scroll area on the side it would be nice to have the keyboard shortcut.
