I have recently purchased a Surface Pro 2 and Construct 2 has some glitches on this device, which I suspect may be related to the high-DPI screen and the fact that the OS uses a 150% DPI scaling setting to compensate and make things readable.
-While most of the interface adheres to the OS DPI scaling settings, some parts do not such as the event editor text. I can enlarge it, of course, but then if I go and work on a desktop on the same project, I will have to shrink the text back down again.
-More problematically, the animation editor appears strangely, with the tiled transparent background taking on an odd appearance and all the tool buttons appearing bunched together. In addition, I cannot do anything requiring a right click (such as adding a new animation) using the touch screen or the pen input. While it prepares to make the right click, nothing happens. This is likely to be the same on other tablets using Wacom digitizers. The only solution is to use the trackpad or an externally connected mouse to bring up right-click menus.
These issues make Construct 2 somewhat impractical to use on the Surface Pro 2.
Attach a Capx
This is not project-related, therefore no CAPX is necessary.
Steps to Reproduce Bug
- Use Construct 2 on a Surface Pro 2 device. Probably also applies to any display using non-100% DPI scaling, or a tablet input with a Wacom digitizer.
- Open the animation editor in a project.
Strange glitched appearance of animation editor (click here for screenshot). Right click menus do not function with pen input.
Animation editor should look the same as it does on other devices, though scaled up to match the screen DPI. Right click menus should work using the pen input.
