What is one thing you realised WAY too long into using C2?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

I've used C2 for about 1-3 years (over 6 months personal edition) and just now I JUST realized you can select by layer names too, not just numbers. :lol:

So I ask you, what is something obvious (or just really useful) that you realized WAY too far into using this fantastic program?

That you can use the F4 key to start the preview from the 1st layout.

The sine behavior can program movement for enemies or platforms in a matter of clicks.

This should be a sticky, maybe under "beginner's questions?"

4 years and I never knew this. Thank you!

This is more game design in general than just C2, but tween EVERYTHING. lerp() should be your best friend.

On the good: Event groups are a good way to optimize code (enabling/disabling them)
On the bad: WiiU doesn't support WebGL :(
Construct Classic - Examples Kit Dropbox is a pile of trash and if you need my old files PM me! :)
