I'm having issues transitioning from layout 1 to layout 2. The objects transition as they should but the events in the second layout don't function at all. Could anyone tell me what I may be doing wrong?
I added a new text object, edited its instance variables to show the global variable and still nada. So I even created a new global variable(Message2), updated instance variables and updated all of the event info to match the new global variable specific to the second layout. Still nothing.
In your event sheet, every tick, "Text" is the object being updated with Message2, not "Text2". You forgot to change it. You could have kept the global variable "Message" as it is global to the whole project.
Some tips about double quotes: you don't need double quotes around strings in the property grid or event variables. If you type "" in those places, it does not mean an empty string, it means a string with two characters, each a double quote. Leave it literally blank to have an empty string.
"" only means an empty string in the parameters dialog.
