Link to .capx file (required!):
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/73774002/bug_8dir_speed.capx

Steps to reproduce:
1. Start preview, use W to add speed, Q to rotate.

Observed result:
8Dir moves +x no matter angle set in object

Expected result:
Speed adjusts the speed of motion along set angle (either as a new 8dir action, or use the object angle itself)

Operating system & service pack: Win7 x64

Construct 2 version: r138

I would also like to suggest the ability to modify VectorX and VectorY through actions as well. You can do it in CustMove and Platform, so I do not see why not for 8Dir

Closing as by design: you have 'Set angle' set to 'No', so the object angle is unrelated to the angle of motion.

Huh, though that so that any movement will change angle, not that angle would also change movement direction.

Well hopefully you'll add the vector stuff.
