A simple Map Editor that where you can edit a map with restriction or totally. You can save and load the map created.
  • Hi!

    Is there a way to group objects (e.g. sprites or texts) while working in the editor? So that when I move one they will all move - again, talking about moving in the Construct editor NOT in-game.

    I know I can select multiple object by dragging/holding shift, that's not what I mean. I mean grouping them (power-point/word-style) so that next time it's enough to click just one of them and move it (and the grouped objects will move with it)

    Thanks :)

  • You can add the items to a family then, when you want to move them, select the family name in the project dialog. This will select all items in the family and they will all move in the editor. Of course this only groups like objects (sprites with sprites and text with text.

  • Thanks for the idea!

    However, I have many pairs of objects I want to group. Creating a family for each pair seems kinda messy...?

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

  • You can add all the items into a container and set the select type to all. Then all items in the container will be selected when you select one and they can be moved but containers can only have 1 copy of each object in them. Also, this option causes all items in the container to be created and destroyed at the same time in gameplay which may cause other problems for you.

    I don't know of any other ways if there are any but these are a couple ideas for you.

  • Thanks again!

    I think this second idea might work... will check it out.
