[Suggestion] Editing objects directly

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Jan 11, 2013 2:59 am

(This may have been posted before, I couldn't find it in the search though)

That part of the UI sorta annoys me from the beginning with C2.
In the event sheet, when I want to keep an action, but switch from one object to an other, the pop-up that appears by default is about the action, and not about the object...
To change the object, I have to go all-the-way back, and click like:
[back]>[back]>[object]>[next]>[next] (or enter, but you get the idea)



So, my suggestion is to split the "action" column in two parts people can click, and when you click the object you can change it directly
Back, Next, and done buttons would still be there to navigate, this is just a shortcut

EDIT: I realize a particular action is only going to happen with specific objects, so there will have to be some kind of reverse-logic to filter the possible objects to choose from...
Such thing is still doable?lemo2013-01-11 03:15:09

This has been on the todo list a while now. We'll get round to it eventually.

Ah good to know ^^
I just searched and found this post
Still no chance for a minimal public todo list without votes, and "best ideas" bundled into random mysterious words?lemo2013-01-11 14:14:26

Ashley : Instead of a long to-do list, perhaps it would be great if there's a sticky thread where you guys just say what you guys are working on currently, and what to be expected in the next release? I know you do pop in from time to time in some random threads and say you are working on so and so, but it would be nice if everything is in one thread.

Yeah, like he says would do the trick as well

So while we're at it, I just added another one, I can't tell if it's in the works or not ;)
