[Request] More hotspot positions

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Dec 02, 2014 9:13 pm

Tiled Background, 9patch, Spritefont, Text. Why all of this objects can have hotspot only on Top-Left and Center?

For many releases now I've been modifying official plugins just to get more hotspots options. And it's very annoying to do so on every new release.
Yes i know I should not modify official plugins, but for something simple like this it's just not worth making separate plugins.

@Ashley please can you add this?

Adding all hotspot possibilities: Top-Left, Top, Top-Right, Left, Center, Right, Bottom-Left, Bottom, Bottom-Right takes about 1,5 minute for each object. There are no compatibility problems or other strange issues (some of them I've modified while working on a project, and been using it for few months now and never experience any of strange behaviors).

Don't need to tell anyone how this makes life a lot easier.

Yes please! Especially for text, dealing with a top-left hotspot is really annoying when the text is left-aligned.

While we're on the subject...what about making tilemaps center-oriented? Right now you can't resize them without screwing up your tiles :T

Making games from lTr to RtL (how languages read left to right or right to left). We would simply have to do math to align the position to the right corner.
