Feature Requests / Horizontal scrolling in Graph View
« on: October 18, 2017, 01:28:23 PM »
If you check Mouse Wheel Scrolls Graph View in the Preferences you can scroll the state machine in the view vertically. It would be consistent to allow horizontal scrolling too, like other programs do. For example Photoshop: If you hold Ctrl the image scrolls horizontally. Because in this case, if the option mentioned above is checked, the Graph View zooms in and out while holding down Ctrl, it would be also okay to use Shift for horizontal scrolling (in both cases of this option).

It's just a suggestion for better user experience. :)

I stumbled over an issue which can cause an accidental change of the order of actions in the Inspector Panel.

How to reproduce:
  • Open a state machine in the Playmaker Editor
  • Ensure to have a few actions in the current selected state
  • Click on the scroll bar of the Graph View and drag it
  • While dragging the scroll bar move the mouse over the header of any action in the Inspector Panel
Now the mouse cursor changes to the drag and drop cursor for reordering actions. If there is no action selected while following the steps above, nothing visible happens. (But sometimes one of the actions will be duplicated.) If there is an action selected while following the steps above, you can reorder the actions accidentally. And sometimes you wouldn't even notice it in the first place because you probably look at the Graph View.

Edit
Now I was able to reproduce the duplicate action issue mentioned above. If you first try the steps above without any action selected and after that with an action selected, the action will be duplicated.

Feature Requests / Unexpected behavior when adding new action
« on: September 14, 2017, 08:28:35 AM »
Hello everyone,

I encountered some unexpected behavior when adding a new action with a mouse double-click from the Action Browser.

If you add an action while another action in the current state is selected the new action will be created above the selected action.

If you add an action while no other action in the current state is selected the new action will be created after all actions at the end.

That makes perfect sense.

But there is one case where no action is selected but the action will be created at the topmost position before all other actions.

To reproduce this case you have to delete an action. Now you can see there ist no other action selected anymore. But if you insert a new action it will be created at the top. If you click with your mouse on a free area below or inbetween other actions before creating a new action, the new action will be inserted at the end of the list. It seems there is a selection issue going on in the background not visible for the user. That makes this behavior hard to understand.

Feature Requests / Show custom tooltips of variables in Inspector
« on: May 06, 2017, 04:56:48 PM »
Hello everyone,

I noticed that the custom tooltip text of variables isn't shown in the Inspector, if the "Inspector" option is checked.
This would be really helpful. Now we have to navigate to the PlayMaker window and then to the variables tab to get the info.

Feature Requests / [Action Browser] Clear Filter shortcut
« on: May 06, 2017, 03:48:47 AM »
Hello everyone,

it happend to me mutiple times that I hit Escape after searching for some terms to clear the filter and start a new search quickly. But you all know what happens if you hit Escape in the Action Browser. :o
Hitting Escape in the Event Browser or Global Browser does clear the filter.

I've attached the Action Browser in my Unity layout. So in this case I have to open and attach the window again.

I would like to request a new tiny option available in the settings menu of the Action Browser.
Something like "Clear Filter On Escape" instead of closing the window would be nice.
But according to user experience it would be more sensible to change the current behavior so the filter is cleared by hitting Escape by default like it does in the Event Browser or Global Browser. An option "Close Window On Escape" would make more sense.

What do you think? Sounds useful to me.

Greetings

Playmaker Help / [Easy Save 2] State doesn't fire FINISHED [SOLVED]
« on: May 05, 2017, 03:58:20 PM »
Hello everyone,

I bought PlayMaker and Easy Save 2 and i'm really fascinated by all the possibilities.
They work really well together.

But if I add the ES2 actions Get Folders or/and Get Files to a state to feed arrays with all files and folders, the FINISHED event isn't fired anymore. I need to use Next Frame Event to get to the next state.

But why is this? Is it maybe an issue or am I doing something wrong?


Thanks in advance.
Gustav
