Zooming in and out on event sheets

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Wed Jun 10, 2009 12:47 pm

at first this may seem useless to a lot of you, but i would find it extremely useful for managing a big project while you make it. i always tend to find myself looking at only 3 conditions on my monitor because of the long amount of actions i put in each one. it would be nice if i could zoom out and see 10-20 so that i could reorganize things, and improve my workflow.

zooming in and out would let us look at our code in an easier way when we have alot of it.

Yes, you can... but what he wants to do, I think, is make the actual events, icons, and text smaller.

Anyway, if you're just needing this for moving events around, why not set the event display to Chronological? It'd give you some extra room.


...speaking of which, it appears that the icon display for Chronological is bugged. Submitting bug report :P

The entire editor will be rewritten in DX, so it should be a cinch.
