I had this frustration when using my mouse wheel to scroll through event sheet editor. Since Construct 2 allow to scroll only 1 line at a time, I found a little mouse enhancement software that allows to scroll more lines at a time + scroll the background windows (without clicking on them first to make the active ).
1. Download KatMouse from here: http://download.cnet.com/KatMouse/3000-18491_4-24138.html or from any other place (for me, the last version 7 is not working on win7 x64. I am using version 1.04)
2. After installing the software, go to settings ->classes tab and drag the cross icon over the event sheed editor in C2
2a. I forgot about this step. Disable this so you can open links in a new browser tab by pressing middle button
3. Double-click the class name in KatMouse
4.Set how many lines at a time you want to scroll with your mouse wheel
If you have problems when Google Chrome zoom in/out for no reason, you can repeat step 2 but this time drag the cross icon over Chrome, and on step 3 make sure to check "Windows has wheel scrolling support?"
That's it !
You can also just use middle mouse or the space bar to scroll
Thanks keepee never knew about clicking the middle button. Silly me.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Thanks Cipriux - KatMouse worked! I was also a bit bugged by the one-line scroll. However the click and drag also works, but wheel scroll is less work for my tired fingers
I'm surprised there aren't more comments on this topic. One line at a time really slows things down when the event sheets get long. I don't want to split up everything into a bunch of event sheets, and I don't like needing to use keys or using the middle mouse button. I just want to scroll with the mousewheel, as I do with all my other programs.
Do we know why the event sheet doesn't conform to the mouse settings of the OS? So far this is the only program I use that I noticed this issue.
I tried catmouse, but found that it didn't work consistently.
Peronally I find scrolling with mouse wheel really tedious and RSI-inducing. Putting up with guys at work scrolling through thousands of lines of code (or long documents) with the 'zzzt' 'zzzt' 'zzzt' sound of a (well worn-out) mouse wheel all day used to drive me up the wall. Page up/down is quicker and quieter. But I digress. And unfortunatly there is PgUp/PgDn feature in the C2 editor! So I'm liking the sound of multiple line scrolling as a workaround. Also I tend to use bookmarks at strategic locations throughout an event sheet.
edit: and while a nice tip, the middle-button click/drag doesn't do much for me after a while. The space bar thing is interesting and I didn't know about that.
Would be nice to see the arrow keys bound to scrolling. Hold shift + Arrow keys to move X amount of lines. (X defined in the C2 preferences)
