[Request] Replace Object in Editor

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Nov 10, 2013 11:24 am

Hi all,

Just a quick request - the ability to replace an object in the editor.

Our pipeline usually means that artwork for levels is complete about halfway into building levels. Levels are built using placeholder sprites until the artwork is ready.

Currently we're spending several hours manually replacing placeholder sprites with the final artwork. It would be great if there was a way I could select a bunch of sprites, right click and select 'replace object(s)', and it would swap them out, retaining the original position/angle.

Cheers!

Have you tried using a folder-based project and directly pasting over the animation frame image files? If you have Construct 2 closed when you do this, then re-open the project in C2 after replacing the files, all the objects should still be in the same position/angle.

@Ashley hmm yes, that could work actually. Will just require a little preplanning. Cheers!
