[Feature request]- add type writer option to text object

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Jan 07, 2016 8:03 pm

Yep I know your plugin rex and it's great. I would love those features in the normal text object so everyone could enjoy them.

Since we are talking about styling text; is there a way to replicate something like the stroke layer effect in photoshop for text (= basically an outline around the characters)? I've looked through the standard effects in C2, but have not found one that would emulate that effect (or even do a drop shadow).

eli0s wrote:@rexrainbow , as always you rock! I just wish that those functions were somehow more integrated into the basic text object and easily accessible without the need to have a lot of different plugins/behaviors that use their own logic.

I mean some basic formatting within the text object like [b]...[\b] or [size=200]...[\size] or [color=#800000]...[\color] or even [shadow]...[\] would really add some coherence to the workflow (forward slash is inverted for displaying reasons)...

Anyway, I'm glad you are around though!!! Thank you for your amazing work!

I totally agree. Being able to italicize/bold/underline a single word within the text object would be, like, a +255 to Effectiveness.

I have a pretty heavy draw on text objects in my project for a custom dialogue system that currently flows great, but can't do some of these simple formats. As it is right now, later in development, I may have to carve all of it out and replace it with Rex's (R)excellent plugin.

It'd be great if a future update could incorporate these into the Text Object, so +1 to this Feature Request!
