As I spend more time Defolding there are a few things about the IDE that I find a bit cumbersome. The central editing pane is too small when doing any serious script editing. Having to grab and resize the peripheral panes is a pain. It would be so much nicer to have little shrink/expand buttons as you find in so many IDE to quickly slide those pesky perhipheral panels in/out quickly. I mean something like this
I personally have never been a great fan of drag & drop/point n click UI design - nice for newbies but it soon starts hitting your productivity. I have taken to editing the various *.gui, *.go etc files directly in VSCode. Fortunately, the Defold IDE detects file timestamp changes and reloads the changed files automatically. It would be nice if this could be done in the editor itself - I seem to recall that the likes of Silverlight and Delphi had this capability.
I may be wrong on this but the Undo capabilities are well below what is offered by most IDEs - VSCode for instance - or even by Notepad++: both let me Ctrl + Z away almost ad infinitum.
Finally - not really an IDE issue - it would be nice if the tutorials were to mention somewhere right up front that the X/Y position attributes of GUI objects refer to their centroids. It doesn’t take long to figure this out but it would be nicer to simply be told so.
