Typing Error within Construct

This is not a Bug Technically, but it IS a minor issue that you should know so you can fix it.

Whenever you create a condition, then go to put an Action under it regarding the Jump Strength, there are *** 2 *** Jump Strengths' shown, One of them is actually Jump Sustain (whatever that is) so should be listed as such.

Minor Issue I know, but it does matter to have everything say what is actually there.

Oh yea .. a tiny detail thing too ... Invert looks alot like insert and therefore is rather difficult to notice, especially if you haven't used Construct before. Maybe Invert could be called Oppose or Reflect or Opposite or Negate (that's what they call it in TGF) or Mirror Form or Heads and Tails (Heads for positive, Tails for Negative) or Flip or Flop or Conflict or Contrast or Counterbalance or Renounce or Refute or Contest or Controvert or Contradict or Protest or Resist or Dissent or Veto or Blackball or Negative or Pit or Match or Face or Confront or Counteract or Fight or Repel or Repulse or Rebuff or Counterweight or Counterpose or Buck or Contend or Debate or Fence or Repudiate ...
point is .. Inverse and Invert look alot alike and there's lots of other words to choose from.

I kinda like either Reflect or Oppose.

Thank You for making Construct btw ... I am having a bit of trouble with it though ... it could be a little bit more user-friendly ... I like all the features and everything ... but, it might be a good idea if you'd take a look at a few Nicely made Interfaces. Check out GraphicsGale (it's a pixel animation editor) .. notice how simplistic everything is ? ... all can be easily found and learned by the user.

Also check out The Games Factory by ClickTeam. NOT MMF, NOT MMF2 .. they ruined the interface when they made those ... not even TGF2 ... Only TGF 1 has a truly wonderful Interface.

Simplicity of design, while still powerful, ease of use for the user ... that's the key.
Don't get me wrong, I'm loving Construct so far .. but it would be MUCH better with a few interface optimizations. I'm not saying to make it like either of the things I've suggested to look at ... just saying look at them to get an idea of what is easy to use and very comfortable as Interface.

It will make Construct even better. Thanks for reading !
