[Request] Printing Event sheet

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Feb 03, 2013 6:47 am

Hi admin,

1. Could we print out the event sheet?

2. Could we add comments to event sheet (similar to c++ /* */)?

Thanks in advance

Right click the event sheet and choose comment.

Or use the "q" hotkey for comments.

Sammy, I'd recommend you first have a good read at the manual before making any more requests.

Most of what you've asked so far in various topics is already in place or doable and documented.

As for printing an event sheet, when saving your project as a folder your event sheet is saved as a XML file (which can then be printed).
It may not be optimal though.
I'm curious as why you would want to print event sheets exactly ?

Printing out coding is for reference and ease learning. Similar reason for printing event sheets.

Please consider adding a print button to print out event sheet easily.

writing in notepad is better as learning yourself than reading a printed sheet

i often try to replicate something from a tutorial or example on my event sheets and having a printout helps. A second monitor would do the trick too.

I have resorted to printing out screenshots of event sheets that i want. It is fairly inconvenient though.

I must say I'd also like to be able to export events or event sheet on a image format or print format, or even something else. the reasons?

-sharing easily events with logics
-some people could do some documented exemples using directly the look of C2

I know there is the classic way print screen then paste it, but it is inconvenient

However, it is a thing I think is very low on my C2 wish list, could be cool, but not an obligation

(perhaps maybe it is possible to do an online_event_sheet_XML_reader in C2, which would be fine too)

And that is why you shall respect the bug reports guidelines, not only giving a capx is making the bug reproductible in one click in a situation they can work with (less time wasted trying to reproduce vague instructions) but also it helps filtering false positives.

Game design is all about decomposing the core of your game so it becomes simple instructions.
