There are plans for this tabs issue?

Get help using Construct 2

Hey @Ashley!
I think someone already asked you this, but here we go:

Whenever I go into a big project, I have to rearrange all the tabs again.
This is a problem without solution or just isn't in the priority list?
Thanks.

It's a problem with the GUI library used for Construct 2. For now Ashley does not want to get into the library itself, and probably won't at any time.
This should be something fixed on a next generation of editor.

@Zathan - yeah, that's one reason I've decided to try and keep tabs to a minimum - so, for example, I now don't use "include" much for event sheets but prefer to stick with groups for organisation.

Yeah, sorry about that, I've looked in to it and it's a real pain. Our UI library is a big black box of another company's code and modifications can be really painful. I last looked some time ago though, I'll try investigating again and see if there's any other workarounds we can do.

Yeah, it's a valid workaround. hehe

@Zathan sure, it also serves better with search results which are clunky across multiple event sheets. And yes @Ashley rocks for this software.

@Ashley could you please also think about some better differentiation in tabs between layouts and event sheets. I'm using simple prefix for event sheets and layout names [E]EvenSheetName and [L]LayoutName but it's a bit tedious to do that every time when i add something. Small icon or something like that would do.
