Use keyboard to move events in eventsheets

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Hi.

I would love to see an easy option of moving events, groups around in your event sheet, with a keyboard kombination in stead of having to drag and drop with the mouse.

One cool thing would be to hold shift + alt down and then be able to move the events in and out, up and down using the arrow keys.

That would make reorganizing your eventsheets so much easier.

I'd find that really useful too, as well as a left/right option for managing event indentation because this sometimes sucks with drag and drop.

Im going to agree.

I either suck with the drag and drop, or it simply does not work as intended most of the time.
-----------

I find myself trying to drag things as sub events, and they won't go where I want.
Or Trying to move one event above another, and it wont let me put it there because it tries to become a sub event.
simply moving the order of events around is a hassle
Sometimes I want an to rearrange a group, but things will become unintended subevents. Or things refuse to be subevents. Some items simply refuse to cooperate!

I shouldn't have to battle my events for 10+ minutes simply because I realized something works better under a different group. or should be added to a subevent.

This is the most annoying thing about the user interface. I hope this will be fixed for Construct 3. Keyboard shortcuts for moving events up/down and left/right (indentation) might work well.
