Don't miss out on the latest and greatest new features in Construct 3.
This update focuses on some smaller additions, usability improvements and bug fixes. Firstly by popular demand you can now have multiple local previews - simply hold Alt while clicking preview, or use Alt+4/Alt+5 keyboard shortcuts to preview the project or current layout respectively (note these use 4 and 5, not F4 and F5, because shortcuts like Alt+F4 are the OS-level shortcut to close the app).
There have also been a few other smaller additions and changes, including updates to how the editor works on iOS. Note we've also had some users reporting problems exporting when using Kaspersky Internet Security. We couldn't reproduce any problems in our own testing, but the editor will now warn you if it detects it is present on export.
Finally there's another batch of fixes as we stabilise the new built-in functions and Timeline features, as well as various other fixes as bug reports came up. We'd like to bring the new features to a stable release in the next few weeks so please let us know if you run in to any issues to make sure we can work towards a reliable new release soon.

Support for multiple local previews: hold Alt while clicking 'Preview' or use Alt+4 / Alt+5 shortcuts
Event sheet view: can now use Shift+Up/Down for keyboard range selections
Browser object: new 'Navigation UI' option for 'Request fullscreen' (set to 'Hide' for true fullscreen in Chrome on Android)
Import Audio dialog: new option to specify encoding bitrate
C3 runtime: now uses a new storage library - should not change anything but be on the lookout for anything broken
Updated 'Audio analyser' and 'Microphone input' examples to not use deprecated features
Warn on export if Kaspersky Internet Security is detected, since some users report it breaks exported projects
Avoid activating back navigation on iOS, since it allows navigation gestures in iOS 12.2, which breaks the swipe-in panes when added to home screen
