What a lively community!
I am very satisfied with the replies :)

It seems everyone is using it as a sort of comfort zone ;p
I love it as it is :)

I too wonder, if its purpose is assert placement, that we could just make the "margins" infinite, but yeah infinite scrollbar sucks ;p

In any case, Construct 2 is very well designed, wouldn't change it a bit :)

And I am SOOOO Glad I bought it during the Offer :)

@Ashley

My layout is far over the Margins current cap limit of 10000
My game castle is 48000,38400.
The scrollbars do a weird snap when reaching that margin limit.
Can this be looked at?

Kind Regards.

Hi,

when you put margin 0, does it affect on the scale if you make an android app for exemple ?
I mean, if you put margin 500 for exemple, in some devices the screen would be greater so you can see more of the layout than in some other devices whith which you'll see less.
but if you put margin 0, you will see the same on each device and never more ?

Or does margin don't affect at all on the screen size vision ?

Thanks

True, I like the margin option like it is.

Note this thread was originally posted in 2012.

Margins have no effect at all on the actual game itself. It only affects the view in the editor.
