Idea for Architect interface....
I generally think Architect is a very well designed application (even if a few bugs remain, like not remembering the layout e.g. iPad if you open up a past project). But I had an idea that I thought would help people understand controllers a bit better.....I'm getting there slowly understand the relationship between refs and controllers etc. but it would be good if the program could help you a little bit with that.
In Adobe Encore (the DVD authoring application) it has a cool feature whereby you can choose from items in the inspector, e.g. a menu and drag a virtual 'wire' from there to items on the menu in the main preview screen i.e. buttons. and it does the rest.
I thought it would be great if Architect could give you a little headstart when it comes to adding basic controller code, if you could drag say a button from your interface directly onto an item in the inspector, like an panel and it would create the reference for you.
Thanks for the suggestion. We already have some similar ideas on how we can improve building references in controllers directly from the design view.
