This build adds more support for 'Find all references', including for functions (via right-clicking a function condition or action), layers (via the Layers Bar), and event groups. This means Find All References covers almost every aspect of a project now, and makes it invaluable for reviewing and understanding projects. It's also a great way to check event references before renaming something. As part of this update, there's now also a Go to function menu option when right-clicking a Call function action, letting you easily jump to the event that is called by the function.

Other improvements include updates to how preview windows work: now Construct 3 can focus existing preview windows, which is especially helpful if the preview window goes behind the Construct 3 editor window. You can now also press F5 in the preview itself and the same thing happens as pressing F5 in Construct 3: the preview updates to the latest version of the project and reloads. We've also made some changes to the instance variable dropdown in the Parameters Dialog to better categorise the list.

Finally as ever there's a batch of bug fixes. We're working hard to address every report and so far we have closed over 700 issues! Don't forget you can also click the star by changes to favourite them and show you like them!
