Hi,

I was unable to find a similar feature request, but if one exists, please excuse me.

The suggestion I have is to add more views that "duplicate" what is already presented in the tree view (just like animations and skins views).

I don't have a complete idea what these view can exactly do, but the idea is to have views for the following:
  • constrains
  • draw order
  • events
  • images
  • audio

My initial idea was to have these separate views to reduce the amount of scroll up and down in the tree view when searching for a given "item", but I believe they can have extra functionality (like pinning in skin view).
For example:
  • constrains can be selected (for rotate/translate) or configured
  • draw order can be reoreder
  • events can be keyframed

What do you think?
I know the idea is not polished but I have the feeling it could potentially speed up working in larger skeletons

P.S.
I don't use audio at all with spine, so the above suggestion to have them as separate views is more for completeness than anything else.

It's a good idea, we've considered it. The issue is here:

We want to complete a few other items first, like folders to help managing the draw order. It would be more work to separate draw order into a view, and then add folders.

There are some other related ideas, like being able to create a new view for any objects properties, or to otherwise have multiple properties visible at once. There's an issue for storing selections permanently, for easier selection and manipulation:

For now probably the best tip is to use pageup and pagedown to navigate your selection history. That can reduce the amount of scrolling the tree a LOT. If you have something selected and need to briefly work on something else, afterward you can easily go back to your recent selection without any scrolling.

Oops. Sorry, I didn't see this.

I didn't know about this. I'll give it a try. Thanks!
