    Is there any better naming of resources?

    Hi, I'm trying to name scripts somehow so I can easily assign them to objects as functions (like in other OOP languages). Is there any better option for naming them?

    [SOLVED]Resource order and saving

    This is probably not a big deal, but is there a solution to avoiding resource conflicts when updating a launched game other than: once a game has been released never change the order of resources and if adding to the game only add at the tail of the tree? I guess, maybe saving the string name...

    Question - IDE Any way to pick which display or workspace resources always open on?

    I have two displays, and the second one is vertical (rotated 90 degrees), which is a huge help when it comes to tiles, long scripts, and having multiple expanded views in the resource tree. However, having the resource tree over there forces every freshly opened resource to open in that...

     Suggestion: Show Script/Object Descriptions in Resources Tree

    Not something I really need, but it would be kind of helpful. I'm fine if YYG doesn't want to consider this, I'm not expecting that - I just want to put this idea out there. You know how we can add @descriptions to scripts and object events? I was thinking that it could be sort of helpful if we...

    Hello! After the latest update of GMS 2, some changes were introduced to the resource tree. I really like the new look, but when editing the name of resources, if you select a part of the name, the selection color is very similar to the background, so the selection is almost invisible. Look...

     [Feature request] assignable sprite icons for some ressources

    Hello! I'd like to make a suggestion for the resource tree, I think it would be very helpful to be able to assign sprites as icons for certain resources like rooms and scripts.

    Resource Tree Feature Requests: Alternate Method to Organize Groups & Alpha Sorting

    I think it would be nice if we could organize the research tree some way other than clicking and dragging, because it does not work very well. Groups end up in other groups. Increasing the item size does not help. There is no visual indication of what will happen when you release the moues...
