Construct 3 is not intuitive to use.

  • Oh my God, this is terrible.

    Sorry Scirra, I love you and I love Construct, but this is not good!

    Just simple questions...

    1- Where are project property windows, layer property window, and all other windows?

    2- How I add new layers, and new layouts, or new eventsheet.

    This is not intuitive.

    And use Construct in browser isn't good ideia

  • My first feelings are also a bit negative, everything feels... hidden. Dunno. I just really liked the old layout, so it may take some time to adjust. I'll keep testing.

  • All of these windows are in the same locations as they were in Construct 2.

    Project Properties - Properties pane is defaulted to the top left of the interface. You have to select the top level node in the project pane to have the properties pane update, exactly the same as C2

    Layers Properties - Same as above (although click on a layer in the layer pane)

    All other windows - Same as C2. keep in mind some are disabled in the free version but can be seen in the MENU -> VIEW button.

    Adding new layers, layouts, event sheets is done by right clicking and use the context menu. This is different from C2 as there is no longer a button bar on each pane (which de-clutters the UI quite a bit)

    Hope this helps!

    This is my C3 interface https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzwaD3 ... sp=sharing

  • Top left menu > view > bars. All windows should be there.

  • ahh guslarsen that makes more sense. If that is your default view, then it might not be loading for you correctly. This what you should be seeing by default:

    as LittleBuilder says though, if you can reactivate the bars from the MENU -> View -> bars buttons, then you should be good to go.

    If you can't reactivate the bars, you would want to submit this as a bug in the bug reports forum. Your post was a little misleading without a picture since the C3 interface is relatively the same as C2

  • Also, tunepunk added a guide to the forum to make construct 3 seem standalone, with fullscreen, no toolbars and no address bars.

  • guslarsen - based on your screenshot, you're seeing the mobile UI designed for phones and tablets. If you're on a laptop or desktop you should get a UI that shows those bars by default.

    Thanks jonathanw12! Here's a direct link to the thread for anyone interested. It worked very well for me.

    Thank you Ashley. My settings was in "Automatic".

    I changed to "desktop", then it worked!

    Tks
