How rename "layer 0" as anything else?

0 favourites
  • Seems locked to me but manual does not say it is. Just started on beginners tutorial.

  • I'm trying to do the example in "the beginners guide to construct 2". I've added the tiled background but can not get the beep layer tab to open or change the default name! Even the example layouts do not match what I'm seeing when I'm on the program.

  • In view, check if the layer is enabled

  • Construct2-r178

    I've tried everything and yes layers is ticked. All I can think there is a bug as when I clicked the run icon I was told there is a bug and should report it.

    Wow, only on step 2 and wasted 2 days following instructions. I can alter all other settings except layers!

  • And I should add its so hard and laggy getting on this forum. Sometimes impossible. Why is that? I can scrap other sites at the same time without issue. The server here struggling to cope with traffic?

  • Scirra forum had never this problem for me so far. But yesterday Forum was down (I guess for some reason). Laggy for everybody, It doesn't happen often. Only yesterday.

    And yes report the bug with image in the bugs thread and try re downloading and reinstalling.

  • This is driving me nuts!

    I've reinstalled construct 2 multiple times & gone over the directions hundreds of times.

    Nothing will allow me to rename "layer 0". Why?

    When I try to run layout, I get the following message:

    "Javascript error!

    Object doesn't support this property or method

    HTTP: //localhost:.50000/preview_prelude.js, line 170 (col undefined)

    This is likely a bug in construct 2 or a third party plugin or behavior - please report it to the developer. Subsequent errors will be logged on the console. "

  • Post screen shots and just tell what are the third party plugins you are using. And definitely update it in the bugs forum.

  • Screen shot, sure. Bug report sure. But I have no idea what third party stuff it means?!

    I've only got construct open, nothing else.

    I'm using construct offline. Does this have an effect?

    No dedicated GPU (just the Intel HD integrated GPU ) for next couple of weeks, so does this have an effect I'm not aware of?

  • Wow, as a newbie I would have thought someone would point out my stupid mistake and I could move on, lesson learnt.

    This is definately not meeting up with advertising of being simple, quick and easy!

  • Couldn't you just right click at the "Layer 0" and rename it?

  • No, I can only open properties bar and change size and position. I can't access layers even though it is ticked on top.

  • Try Construct 3

  • I right clicked on layer 0 and it gave me options:



    Tabbed document

    Auto hide(faint)


  • At the bottom if properties bar it says:


    Layer this object instance is currently on.

  • When was the last time you updated your graphic driver?

    What OS are you using?

    Can you open and run any of the included examples or templates?

    This has all the hallmarks of a broken graphic driver problem.
