@Ashley Also, I was afraid of this and it's not in the manual.
When displaying scores via sprite font it should display 1000 as 1,000 automatically, 1000000 as 1,000,000. There seems to be no comma formatting support? Are we doomed to be forever using low scores?
I don't get this.
I just realized this wouldn't be that hard to do by deconstructing into separate sprite font objects and then doing some if then statements for positioning, but again, it would probably be a half day or a whole day of coding for something that should ostensibly be very simple.
And there's something apparently called regex that might help with this, but I haven't messed with it yet and I only found it by doing a very specialized Google search. No mention or pointer to it at all in the manual under Text Object or Sprite Font Object.
In Excel, believe it or not this is a button click to format a number any which way you want.
As this is supposed to be software for non-programmers, I think something like this should be way easier.
I'm glad I can do it and I actually enjoy a challenge, but I'm also feeling some burnout and money pressure.
So you know Ashley, anything to make our lives easier.
Please ignore this. I just discovered the buried Set Character Width feature on Start of Layout which is great and to be fair it was in the manual. I was simply in a hurry and I didn't see anything on the left where you set the character size, so it didn't even occur to me it could be a buried feature.
