What is the most efficient way to make it so that when it's typing a long word near the end of line it doesn't shift down to a new line if it gets too long?

Is there an updated version of the typewriter effect? When I download it from the link and try to open it, it doesn't work.

If you found the answer I'll be very happy to ear it !

I still to figure this out but otherwise the Ashley method is great.

I once made an example for that, look it up here : viewtopic.php?f=147&t=112520

You basically have the pre-measure the text, and add a linebreak before words that get wrapped.

@Ashley

Love the simple code for typewriter effect. I have one request that I can't figure out with my limited code knowledge.
How can I add the random function to this code:
Code: Select all
left(text1.Text, len(DestText.Text) + 1)

I have text1, text2, text3... text50 and I need the above code to choose one of the 50 randomly. I tried
Code: Select all
left(text(random(50).Text, len(DestText.Text) + 1)
but it errors.
I'd appreciate any help!

Thanks!

Put them in a family and put the expression in a "pick random" event.

I'm still missing something @ashley. I put the (4) text choices in a family and added the family to your expression. I hoped it would choose a random family member like it does when you use family in create. Unfortunately, nope - it just kept using the first text in the family.

I guess I don't understand your suggestion,
put the expression in a "pick random" event


The endgame is a random answer generator that uses the typewriter effect
I've included the C2 file if my description isn't clear.http://www.danielwheeler.net/SB/random_text.zip

Thanks!
