Small object creation suggestion (Layers)

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Dec 02, 2011 10:50 am

Hey, all.

I know Ash has a todo list long enough to wrap around Earth twice, but something workflow related has popped up that could really ease the suffering that comes with adding unplanned layers. Here:



A drop down menu to pick a layer instead of typing the full name every time.

Now an option to change the numbered layers to named ones automagically would be the bomb, but that may be too tricky. While this... seems rather easy, eh?

Thanks for looking!

Non-restrictive dropdowns (like you can put your own text or click the arrow down and select a layer.

Or like in CC, a right click allowing the dropdown/fixed container to turn into a text box.

And this applied pretty much to any dropdown in actions/conditions would be very awesome.
Ashley already mentionned he was working on it I think. Can't wait

Well, yeah, non-locked in ones for sure, or, actually I just got this idea:



Perhaps a little less handy, but why not put Layers in with all the objects in the Expression box? Perhaps separate them a little (along with system).
