    Drag And Drop Convert to DnD

    Hi This is more of just a general question about Dnd code. Is there a limit to the number of times I can swap from Dnd to GMstudio code, and generally as long as my code is valid will it always work? Thanks Paul

    Question - D&D Paste Blocks to top instead of bottom?

    Is there a way to change where the blocks are placed when pasting into the DnD event window? Right now it puts them at the very bottom of the event, but I commonly find myself wanting them at the top so they are ran first. Is there a way to change this default or request the option be added...

    Drag And Drop (GML explanation works as well) Some terminology clarification and automaticaly reading instance names

    For example inst_36147D42, inst_14B84C93, inst_173083D5, are these the names of the instance, or what are they called if not? For now I'll write assuming they are. If we have multiple rooms, and in each room there are 3 instances of object A, as well as 1 instance of object B, and I want the...

    Windows Making a room fullscreen.

    I'm new to this and I've been trying to look for tutorials but there isn't anything I can seem to find about making a room fit the size of the player's screen. What can I do for this to make this work? I'm using DnD in case I can simply use that but I can always use code for it if needed!

    I'm a Game Maker neophyte and was wondering if there is a "how to" guide for DND. The manual is a great resource, but I am looking for something more along the lines of a resource in which I can search for a particular feature I want to add (i.e. a text box where the player can put in their...

    Collisions with DnD

    Hey lads, I'm developing a basic DnD platform tutorial and I was wondering if there was a clean way to handle collisions without using the SOLID option in DnD. With script, it's much cleaner with if (place_meeting...), but I have no idea how to do this in DnD. Also, how would you guys handle...
