+1 for printing option. It will be handy If you could analyze, sketch, organize, add or remove things to your project, before making changes to the code.

I just stumbled across this thread looking for how to print my event sheets.

My reason to need to print them is that sometimes I do not have access to my electronics but I would like to still have my code to error-check during these times.

Yes, there are actually times when I don't have access to a computer and, no, I do not live in the sticks. ;)

Being able to print would be great for teachers who are using this for a class. I need to have students have "hard copies of work" for grades.

As a teacher I agree. It could also serve as an option to provide handouts for them.

There's this program that can do that:
viewtopic.php?f=146&t=93013&p=725452&hilit=print#p725452

Thank you. This could work. However I still think that this feature should be implemented, if Scirra can find time for it.

Cant you just print screen , then save it in whatever image program you have? Then you can print the image through your printer.

You can't print long event sheets like that. Scrolling down and taking new screenshots of every new part of the code would be highly unpractical. What @R0J0hound suggested is a good solution, but I prefer not to use 3rd party software for such features. I think it should be built-in.

At the very least, being able to copy/paste or export the event sheet in plain text is a feature I've been hoping for since I started using C2.

Easy sharing pseudocode via IM, forums, or email were my main use cases. It could also be used to print.

Having to screenshot, and upload and link just seemed really clunky to me. Similar for capx, and doesn't work when c2 not immediately available. Not to mention all the posing restrictions on new users on the forums.

I can imagine how formatting may be difficult though. Representing the relation between the conditions, actions, and sub events is not easily done in plain text.
Mistakes were made.

An online parser for the event sheets XML files would be great. You just upload Eventsheet.xml to the server, then you get a table like bbcode that you can paste in the forums.
