Suggestion: Visual Positioning

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Mon Jun 03, 2013 6:14 pm

Another suggestion.

With dialogs where you specify the position in X, Y terms it might be nice to have a button or something that would let me visually determine the position. Something like a colour picker where it would pop up (or switch) to the layout via and let me zoom and pick a location (then copy that back to my dialog).

Just a thought...

Or just a simple x,y cursor position reading (as used in many graphics programs) at the bottom of the screen perhaps?

That would be good but when you're in the event sheet setting the X, Y value you can't see your layout page (or even get to it). If the developers go to the trouble of making the layout available (via a popup or a button) might as well just click on the layout and record then transfer the co-ordinates back to the position dialog.
