Extended text object (?)

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Nov 24, 2015 2:16 pm

Hi. I was wondering lately, why there was no better text plugin yet. Current ones support only one type of color in single text etc. Is there any way to make a "rainbow" text or something like that in one text object?

Have a look at the tagtext-plugin.

But there's 1 problem: TextHeight and TextWidth doesn't work properly.

You mean in 'size&position'? I think that is for the tagtext-object not for the text itself. If you want to change the font size you have to use 'set font size'

No, i meant the property of TagText named TextWidth/Height. There's the same property in normal text, but works just fine.

Ah, OK you're right. I get different values for height too, the width seems to be correct. You could ask rexrainbow if this is a bug and if he could fix that.
Here is the thread plugin-tag-text_t92363
