Selecting overlapped sprites

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun May 11, 2014 12:10 am

I can't select and edit a sprite that is overlapped and behind another. I think you should be able to click on the same spot and cycle through sprites in the same click area until you select your object. It's a pain having to move things around and put them back.

I understand your thinking but, that doesn't make sense to me or could be very confusing in many scenarios in the game development process, if you really think about it but, you can right click and select "send to bottom of layer" or use the Z order dialog box. Also if you place them on separate layers, (which is a better development practice) you can hide the layer by unchecking the layer in the layer dialog box. This is especially a better practice to avoid confusion during the development process as you'll find out when you start to develop more complex games.

Hope that helps.

You can Tap-click on overlapping Sprites to circle between them.

From the manual "Hold tab and click a selected object to select the next object underneath in the Z order"
