Silly question of the day, Spritefont problem

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed Mar 08, 2017 10:44 pm

When setting up an imported spritefont how do I set the character width of the character "? Construct 2 will not allow you to enter the " in the box without throwing an error since it thinks the " is closing the expression.

I know I am missing something simple but not a lot of info is out there on using sprite fonts with C2.

Thank you, yeah I have used both Spritefont+ and Hornet's mono tool. Spritefonts with known spacing values are pretty easy to set up without the tools though so I was wondering about the quote " issue to see if I was missing something native in C2 or if the tools are required to work around C2 limitations.

Oh, nm. I see the double now... "".

Thanks!
