I’ve been looking around how to get line breaks into text variables for a while now.
I have my UI widget text populated by variables from my saveData. I would love to be able to have line breaks in these.
I finally found the work around using Format Text referenced in this thread, but those threads are almost a year old now, and I stumbled onto this thread which strongly indicates that it doesn’t work anymore thanks to the pins defaulting to wildcards.
I thought I was doing something wrong too, as every tutorial I’ve seen they just default to Pink (for text).
The above screenshot of breaking it into an array won’t work for me, because I have a dedicated screen location whee I want my text, and it’s a single variable.
Suppose I could do some insanity of parsing it out so I can add in line breaks, and then re-combining them all again into a single variable.
But that seems like a lot of unnecessary work though.work.
Donno if making them wildcards by default is an “improvement” if it breaks the only method we had to insert line breaks into text variables.
Wish they would just fix that…
Good stuff in here otherwise though.
