[Request] Editor Font Size

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Jan 16, 2012 4:21 pm

Hey Guys

I just found the ZOOM Option within the editor which is very helpfull, especially for me, since my eyesight is going down rappidly.
I would like to ask, that the zoom is also applied to the additional windows/dialogs, that pop up while useing c2.

Zoom can be accessed by Ctrl+Mousewheel or the View ribbon tab. Where else do you think we should add the option?

I think what weishaupt means is that you can zoom in the event sheet but the dialogs (like expressions, objects, actions window, etc...) size isn't changed.

I guess he'd like the zoom factor to be applied to those windows/dialogs as well.

Doesn't Windows have some options that can help such as increasing font size for all windows etc?zenox982012-01-16 22:41:18
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

@Kyatric - once again, you are right on the point

@zenox - that would effect ALL windows, ie. other programms as well, and that's what I do NOT wantWeishaupt2012-01-17 08:08:08

Dear Ashley,

Would you please give a coder's assessment about if all the conditions windows and parameters windows font sizes for example
Parameters for System, then

The HELP text under window title bar,
the parameter input field for First value
Comparison
Second Value

could be enlarged? So we could see better what we type in?

A section in preferences would be a godsend:

Add Event & Add Action window font: Tahoma size: 14pt
Parameters Window & input field font Tahoma size: 14pt

Thank You!

Bumpity bump..

Would you be so kind, Dear Ashley, and add bigger fonts in

ADD EVENT window

PARAMETERS FOR SYSTEM windows?

They appear windows-system themed with smallest font, that older developers can't see much.

It would make possible for us to code with bigger enthusiasm and even increase the chance to get great ideas.

Make us happy so we can make you happy with GREAT Super-Eyecandy Construct 2 GAMES !!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

@mercy do you mean the list of all actions, conditions and expressions, or the text around the dialogs? The first is easy to change, but the second isn't.

The text around the dialogs where you put math formulas in.
For example:
"Parameters for system: Set layer angle"
Layer: 0
Angle: 0

This is where the brain racking goes on, trying to think with a hammer, what to put in there. Can the parameter edit dialogs be changed to a similar format the Event Sheet has?

It's surprisingly difficult to change dialog text, because it's all at hard coded sizes and Windows doesn't really support zooming dialogs (which sucks). However, content windows, like the list of actions, conditions and expressions, and the edit boxes where you type in parameters, can be resized easily... does that sound like it would be enough?
