Everything you have created here is AH-MAY-ZHING!!! Thank you soooo very much!!!

I do have a few questions though. I am using the template to select which characters to customize and within that template, I have also inserted the limited customization template for 4 characters. I was successfully able to customize the first character, however… I kept getting a warning for the other three characters:


How do I correct this template so that all 4 characters can be customized with limited options?

Also, I ran into the same “duplicate” warning error when trying to create the tappable dressing game for more than two characters. How can I eliminate this issue?
Please help!!!

You have to use different templates with different labels if you’re customizing more than one character in one episode. You can’t use the same template twice in one episode because then there will be two of the same labels. You need a different template with different labels

The same thing applies to the dressing game. You need to change every single label and goto name the 2nd time you use the dressing game template.

Hi Dara I would like the request a template :pleading_face:

Hi, I have a question, I’ve asked one other person, but seems they haven’t gotten back to me yet, hopefully you can help me. My question is-to use the choice template would I have to switch my script around to use it?
