[Suggestion] Item highlight in event sheet

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Jun 07, 2013 7:30 pm

Hi @Ashley, @Tom,

Love the additions, of auto-complete and syntax colouring in r128, very smooth.

Would it also be possible to add a highlight function, so when you click on an item in the event sheet (a variable for instance), it will highlight all of the places you've used said item.

Once my projects become quite large, I sometimes find it difficult to track the little buggers down ;)

Thanks, and as ever fantastic work!

Until then, in the Events tab is a search box. It hides all events that don't mention your Variable name (search term.)

Or, go to where the global is set, rename the variable "HEREIAMxxxxxxxxxxx" then rename it back after you found them.

edit: just tried that, and "IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII" is easier to spot.Paradox2013-06-07 21:03:26
