Needs a disable/enable action, like the rest of the behaviors.

Thanks

Agreed. This is the only reason I usually make my own scroll-to instead of using the behavior.

One time only bump. This is needed.

Not really. Just set scroll X/Y to the object and toggle with a variable.

Well, in the sense of consistency, although it can easily be done with events, I also agree to add that functionality. Why should this behavior not be toggable?

If we had scroll X/Y to the object, ScrollTo behavior should be removed.

I think every behaviors should have disable/enable actions, so I agree this small suggestion.

It would make it nicer to switch what is being scrolled to. When you have multiple you switch between, doing it manually gets a tad messy.

Added ability to enable/disable it in the next build. As ever, I recommend if the built-in behaviors don't do enough, re-do them with events! The Scroll To behavior is trivial to make in events, and then it's easy to customise too. Behaviors like Scroll To are for rapid prototyping and beginner accessibility (no need to even get in to the events).

My fix was creating a small sprite called.... drum roll.......... Camera.

I then PIN the Camera to that of the object I want it to scroll too. If I need to stop that or even scroll elewhere. I UNPIN, Move, REPIN if wanted.

However. I do agree. That it is strange not to have a toggle.

Also on top of that. This would be a great tool for multiple players or scroll to objects.
