Somthing weird has happened, and I cannot find my sounds events in the Categories tab.

Has anyone seen this before?

Is there a way to find out explicitly which category a sound event is in?

It actually makes a lot of sense to me that the category would be a visible and editable property of a sound event that can be set in the Event Heirarchy edit view.

Anyone else think so?

edit: If I quit designer and load it up again, they seem to appear. I don’t know what is making them disappear though…

No, we haven’t seen this before. Do you mean the categories tab is empty, or does it contain categories but no events?

We have a proposed feature in our tracker to add a "Find in categories" entry to the event context menu. This would allow you to jump from an event in the Hierarchy tab to the same event in the Categories tab. Does this sound like it would meet your needs?

I’m not sure that it makes sense to edit the category of an event in the property sheet, considering that categories form a hierarchy of their own.

It’s a bit inconsistent to reproduce, but it’s happened to me a few times.

Imagine a list of categories like so:

music
music/combat
music/idle
sfx
sfx/environment
sfx/enemy
sfx/player
etc…

They have a hierarchy, but they can also be represented as a list.

Since a sound can only be in one category, the category that a sound belongs to could at least be shown as a property. And why not edited as a property?

This might also allow an event to inherit a category from a template.

It might also make it easier to manipulate the category of multiple sound events simultaneously.

Yes, I see your point. I have added your request to our tracker. We’ll discuss it here and see if it fits with our development plans.
