Organizing Variables / Events
« on: May 02, 2012, 11:03:12 AM »
I'm wondering if there's an easy way in playmaker to organize custom variables and events. Currently my global variable list looks like the picture below. Organizing it by alphabetical order would be awesome.

Also when I'm selecting an event transition the number of events on my screen I can choose is kind of mind boggling at this point. Is there a way we can tier these off into a drilldown or folder structure?

You can use "/" in event names to create folders in event selection menus. E.g. "MyEventCategory/MyEvent"

I'll look into adding more organization options in the next update (sorting, folders etc.).

"/" is interesting, but I'd rather not have that influence the actual name of my events off hand. I'll try it and see how it feels.

If I remember correctly unity menus should also let you type a key to jump to jump to menu items... Might save some time in big lists...

It does, but currently the lists aren't alphabetized, so it doesn't help  :)
