@AMELIA exits left

    CHARLOTTE (cough)

Remove the brackets around the animation name.

ohhh, tysm


#8

You’re welcome. :smile:


#9

Or you could just do
&CHARLOTTE is eat_pizza

Another thing, when you have the character doing an animation, like thinking, and having dialogue right under them, then it is best to include parentheses () around what they think so that it shows up as a thought speechbubble.
