Yeah, I do that too. I add a few empty spaces in the comment as well as some text like End Groupname, just so there is some visible padded space to help me feel out where I am in the sheet and so everything doesn't just blend together.

no, if there are no lines, there is no CSS to replace, the "custom" interface we can do its just replace already created assets of the interface and colors.


You'd be surprised how flexible CSS can be - you can get very creative with selectors and pseudo elements. If the editor truly is created entirely in HTML5, this will definitely be possible.

This got me excited as well, I wonder how far the "copy as text" extends? Is it just the action, could it be the whole event block? Very obvious learning and teaching applications for here on the forum.

But what really excites me is that it would imply a relationship between the event editor and typed text; an actual typed syntax... Which could mean that C3 might have a text based event sheet for those that prefer to type code!

EDIT//
Looking at it more closely, I really like the subtle border radius on the edges of comments and events.

Yep spot on. You can even add content with CSS, eg:

Exactly, CSS is very powerful. (I know after have worked with it) I do not worry about that one.
I know the CSS-side ability to add text/html that you feel is missing. I love that "hack". So you do not have to edit the actual html/php/whatever files but the CSS only, easier for update.


I just hope for it being able to shared so the people that are less fluent in CSS be able to adopt. And/or visual editor where you can easily change colors, fonts and sizes without having to know CSS. Similar it is now in Construct 2. just with extra option of going advanced mode.
