How do I pin text to the canvas?

Get help using Construct 2

Hello,

I have a platform game and I'm trying to figure out how to pin the points score text to the canvas so that it is visible as the player moves around the layout. Right now I can only figure out how to pin the points score text to the player, but that's not a good solution. Can you advise?

Thanks :mrgreen:

Make a new layer and set its parallax to 0,0.

I recommend you make you way through the beginner tutorials and the manual it will help you learn the basics

Your suggestion didn't work for me at first, but then I figured out the textbox needed to also be set at position x =0 y=0 but wouldn't have figured it out without your lead. Thanks!

I've read the manual before and its not super helpful for figuring out specific issues like this, and could benefit from having a lot more capx examples, videos and visuals.

glad to see you figured it out. here some C2 tut videos https://www.youtube.com/user/ArcadEdGames/videos by ArcadEd he also posted stuff on his Twitter https://twitter.com/LearnConstruct2

also c2-academy-tutorial-videos_t124551

in the tutorial section they have a .Capx section where they include the capx. have you gone thought the templates included with C2 they can be very helpful also i find just looking though the forums and especially this section(How DO I) really helps when learning
