[Suggestion] event sheet search function

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Jun 10, 2013 5:42 pm

All,

I think it would be most helpful to be able to search an event sheet for a specific keyword...or the ability to highlight all objects of a given type. Say I wanted to find all instances of an audio object...I could search for Audio Objects froma drop and then define an optional file name (if I dont define a specific file name it just highlights all audio files).

Maybe there is already something like this and I just dont know about it...but if not it would be most helpful for me as I tend to work with others on a project and sometimes find where in the event sheet they put something can be a challenge.

The ribbon has a "Search" field in the "Events" tab that basically does that.Kyatric2013-06-10 17:48:52

Was it part of a recent update or had I just glazed over it all these months?

It's been in for quite some time, I don't remember what release exactly though but it's not something I'd qualify as "recent".

Perhaps we can have Ctrl-F trigger the ribbon to appear on the correct spot and have keyboard focus put on the Search box?

I know I try to do Ctrl-F before manually clicking to reach the search box every time.

You can customize the IDE and put the search box in the Title Bar
