Right, happens here too. Also, if you add a period, you can't delete that one either. It only disappears once you delete the name of the period, which is kinda... not obvious.
Also, how do I make interchangable text? Like, two characters talking? I'd imagine I'd simply set the 'Start' Value of one period to 'After XXX' - but there's only 'After previous' and 'With previous', so no joy. It'd be nice if Construct would simply list all the periods across all timelines in that rollout bar, so we could simply pick the one we'd need.
Example: I have 2 timelines in my timeline object, one is called Bill, the other is called Bob.
I start with Bills timeline:
Start: After previous, Name: 01, set the text for the parameter 1 (a bigger textfield would be neat too, so we could actually write dialogue ) and jump over to the Bob timeline. Now it's Bobs turn:
Start: After Bill('01'), Name: 01, set the text for the parameter.
Pretty simple, especially if Construct would index the existing 'Name' fields for me whenever I click on a 'Start' rollout field.
