[quote:uylv9jgy]and dont see why it absolutly wouldn't work
The reason that wouldn't work is because so much of the information in events is object-specific. If you had a bunch of copied text events and pasted them into a cap's event sheet, what guarantee do you have that the objects in the event exist in that cap?
And how would you handle typos? Or improper formatting? Construct events don't worry about such things, because you can't have a typo in an event (an expression, yes, but not the event itself), and it's not possible to format the event improperly. The only errors a user can really make with events are logical errors.
So to get pasted text to translate into events, you would need to add all sorts of functionality to Construct not only to parse text, but to check that there are no missing objects, check that the events are formatted properly, give back errors for typos and formatting and missing objects, etc. Basically you would have to re-write the entire event system from the ground up to handle all of that.
So could it have worked? Yeah, if it had been designed that way from the beginning. But it's so fundamentally different to what Construct is now that it's really just impossible.
But... apparently C2 will use XML, so I guess you'll be able to type until your heart is content, if that is your choice .
