    String, the length before a newline problem. Could use help :)

    Hi!

    i'm making an app which display a bunch of diffrent strings at random.
    The problem is that the length of a line in the string won't go as far as i would like.

    For example:
    Displaying string.

    "I'm a rookie! What should i do to
    get this game going with
    normal difficulty ?"

    I would like it to go further as in like a certaint amout of pixles, charaters or something similer.

    Result i want:

    "I'm a rookie! What should i do to get this game going with
    normal difficulty ?"

    Any ides ?

    Seems like a very usefull settning option for the string object.

    BTW:!!: I'm building the app for IOS so ides regarding extensions has to be supported.

    Have you stretched the String object to the correct size and altered the font to a size that suits your needs?

    I'm have changed the font to impact i believe it's calld, suited the art i'm going for and the size is enough to be easly readble but size of the text doesn't change the length of the line in the sentence.

    I might be blind but stretch ? i can't stretch the string object nor change its size. Or have i completly missed something ?

    To resize the string object:-

    1: click on it (in the frame - it gets highlighted), then click it again - you should get points that enable resizing.
    or
    2: click on the string object (in the frame), and then go to the properties, select the size & position (3rd icon from left) then change the x (width) and y (height).

    Taccy is very correct about how to change the object's size. Most objects can be altered in this way.

    Just try'd it now and try'd it before, the properties option is greyed out for me and have allways been for string objects,
    and the first method you describe doesn't work either.

    Are you both sure you have done it with the string object?...

    Could you perhaps get a screenshot, Radical? You can do that by pressing the Print Screen key, and then pressing Control+V in a graphics program to paste it in, and then cropping it in said graphics program, and then saving the image.

    The problem seems to be that the string is set to be invisible at start. If you change that, then you can change the size of the string. After changing it to be the desired size, you can change it back. You can also simply set it to be invisible at the start of the frame, which means that, if you want to change it again, you won't have to constantly go back and forth between it being invisible at start and visible at start.
