The Layout order jumps after loading

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Nov 20, 2013 12:59 pm

Hi everyone,

After reordering my levels and their event sheets, and saving them, whenever I load them again, the order gets mixed up.

This is the correct sequence:

After loading it becomes:

Why doesn't it save the correct sequence? It is a pain to constantly rearrange them each time I open C2.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.rekjl2013-11-20 13:00:14

It is really not a good idea to have every single Layout and Event Sheet open in the Editor.
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

@zenox98

Thank you. All this time I thought that we had to have all our levels and even sheet open there. After your comment, I tested it out and understood better how C2's layout works.

Thanks again!

I never have figured out how it chooses the tab order, it seems random, and even changes every so often. I just know it's not alphabetical.

You can drag them around to change the order, and even drag them down to split the screen, showing more than one at a time.

@Paradox

Haha ya, me too. I thought that I needed all the tabs to be there, so each time I open C2, I had to rearrange all of them. It does seem random doesn't it? All I know is that the first level I created will always be the first, the rest are like a box of chocolates....

Would also like some information in regards on how they're sorted.

Sorry, after a few loads, I noticed that even the first level I created also gets mixed up. So every tab moves around at random at each load.

@Stiivais
Agree, just want to understand how C2 views them to determine their order.

Same - an automatic save of tab order and tabs open would be great.

yea I agree this should be addressed.. i like having them all open. thus far i don't have more than usually 6-8 so i have plenty of room to have them all open is great! Having them load in the right order would be even better!

Thanks,

Agreed. The first thing I do when I open my projects is rearrange the tabs how I like them.
