Title: Editor improvements
Post by: wrightmat on February 04, 2014, 05:34:36 am
Christopho- mad props on the recent improvements to the editor - there are some great things there that really speed up development. Using the improved editor got me thinking of additional improvement potential, so I thought I'd post some here rather than making a bunch of issues on github (I can do that if you prefer).

Christopho will prefer to have several github issue, it's how he works and it keeps a trace of the development demands.

I agree with all your suggestions :) I added them to the bug tracker on github.
For the x icon of tabs, note that you can already close tabs easily by pressing Ctrl-W.
Thanks for your feedback

Some of your suggestions were implemented in Solarus 1.2 that was released a few days ago:
  • When changing the id of an item in the left selector pane, the current id could be the default in the dialog.
Done in 1.2.

  • Holding "control" and using the mouse wheel could zoom the view.
Done in 1.2.

  • Making some tweaks to make the editor more friendly to smaller resolutions would be helpful - I have a machine running at 1024x768 and there are times when I can't see everything in a dialog box. One example is the new "destructible" dialog - would it be possible to lay things out differently so the dialog isn't so big?
Done in 1.2. The dialog of destructibles now has a vertical scrollbar if needed.

The "X" button on tabs is not done yet, neither is the "play music" button. These improvements are planned for Solarus 1.3.
