[Suggestion] Horizontal Scroll in Layout Editor

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Nov 22, 2013 3:28 pm

I would like to suggest adding horizontal scroll in the layout editor using [Shift + Mouse Wheel]. This would make it much easier to move around the layout when editing large layouts or when zoomed in.

I believe this has been suggested before, but I don't recall the results of those suggestions.

Thanks!

I don't see what's wrong with the current method of using the middle mouse button - it's much simpler than having to hold a key down as well as use the mouse.

If you want a key/mouse combo, then it's currently set to SPACE + mouse move.

If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

I use Microsoft Visio a lot, in conjunction with C2, for design and diagramming. I find using the Shift + Mouse Wheel combo very useful, especially when I'm flipping back and forth between the two. I find using the space-bar combo to not be as easy.

I don't see what's wrong with adding a bit more functionality to the editor. Shift + Mouse Wheel is used in a lot of other applications for horizontal scrolling, including most web browsers.Wastrel2013-11-22 15:55:36
