Add event -> "Keyboard" Missing

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sat Jul 06, 2013 7:44 pm

I downloaded construct 2 today in the hope of making my own platformer. I started on a funny little game, put alot of time in making the sprites, and started designing the level. When adding events at first I could use the keyboard input. I then had to leave for a few minutes and put my computer on sleep, when I returned Constrcut wasn't responding and I had to quit the application. When reopening I had to make th whole game again (I didn't mind) but when I went to add the keyboard function to a event again it as missing. I tried restarting the program and restarting my computer but nothing works. Is there a way to fix this? Any comments would help

You guys need to read/watch some tutorials.
Double-click anywhere on the layout -> Keyboard -> Insert.

This ^^. Its really the best way to globally find all calls and variables, expressions, etc because it accesses the layout directly. It does not get confused with events already existing, it doesn't care. So, for any addition to the layout (such as those with one time additions like keyboard, mouse, function, etc) go to your layout (not the event sheet) and double click as said, outside instances. And boom. there is all the options there.
