Text object editing rant

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Automatic resizing for new lines is very suboptimal. Say you want your lines to be different widths? Like in a dialogue.
Like this:
Rachael: Have you ever retired a human by mistake?
Deckard: No.
Rachael: But in your position that is a risk...


Another problem is that the sizes of the font are not displayed correctly (at least for some fonts).
Like if I select Helvetica 54 in the editor and in html5 it gives me something like Helvetica 48.

Thats makes aligning text objects a nightmare.

Considering C2 is an HTML5 engine, I don't know why it should be the case.

C2 is powered by HTML5, sure would be nice if we could have a text object that supports html tags!
If it can be done, someone on the web will show you how to do it!

C2 is a canvas renderer. Not a DOM. So HTML tags don't work in the Canvas Renderer at all. Personally I think the DOM objects should be removed as it creates more difficulties than it's worth. We get threads as needing improved DOM behaviors when all the games should not be using DOM objects.

Instead the DOM should be removed and a proper UI that works with Canvas should be the only defacto UI items.
