I know that Construct 2 changes the names of objects on export to make it harder to reverse engineer the game and everything, but could it be optional? Like, a box you check at export?
I know about the workarounds but they are not always simple or even possible, and I've read many people who'd really like to have the "Create object by name" action back (since it was in Construct Classic).
+ 1 if you want it ?
+1, this can be necessary for arcade games... but I still prefer to use one instance and use different animation/variables
anyway, in my opinion create object should stay by default with choose by name, because you have just to write the name of the object
