Author Topic: Suggestion: Ctrl+S to save in script editor (IMPLEMENTED)  (Read 728 times)


  • (Working on a RON game (sort of) )
    • I can help with play testing
    • I can help with scripting
This is just a tiny suggestion, hopefully it's easy to do but if not it's not very important:

When I use the script editor, I tend to press Ctrl+S often to save the script. It's a reflex from working in Word and other code editors. It would be nice if that shortcut did save the script (without closing the editor, as suggested here: http://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/tracker.php?action=detail&id=324).

Right now, it seems to delete the last thing you wrote down, with no undo  :o, so I end up pulling my hair out each time I accidentally press Ctrl+S. Even if it didn't save, if it were changed to not do anything that would help prevent my premature baldness ;)

Yep it's a reasonable request, as you've noticed there's already a tracker entry for it. Thanks for your input.
