So I’m writing a college story and I want the main character to get an acceptance letter saying something along the lines of.
It is with great pleasure that I inform you you have been admitted into Brighton University.
I don’t know how to just have a plain text that will lay over a INT. Letter artwork that I made. I considered just having the letter already be typed into the artwork, but I really want the reader’s name, whatever they chose, to be in the letter. And not just say, “dear student”
I believe that the create overlay from text will work with custom names, however I’m not entirely sure if it will work or not, because I don’t believe I’ve used it for that.
The code I’m referring to, as used in my story, is:
&ui S create text |color: white, shadow: black |+AMETHYST
These overlays could be scaled up and you can use text effects on them to control color/shadow/etc.
As I said, I’m not sure if they do work for your purpose, however I would recommend testing them out. Unfortunately, there is only one font that these exist in.
I would try the code below and see if it works.
&overlay INTRO create text Dear [FIRSTNAME],
&overlay INTRO opacity 1
&overlay INTRO scales to z z
&overlay INTRO shifts to x y
Update: I’ve tested it and it totally works!
Good luck setting up the admissions letter and writing your story!
