I have this tiny problem in my story.

@pan to zone 3
@pan to zone 1

I want the screen to say in zone 3 for a while, but it immediately changes back to zone 1.

@pan to zone 3
@pause for 3
@pan to zone 1

The scene will pause for 3 seconds you can change it to any time you want.

Does anyone know if we will ever be able to create custom characters?


What do you mean by that exactly? Like Sims customization kind of crazy or just customization in general? You can customize characters for INK and LIMELIGHT.

Like sims customization I guess (height , fat/skinny, etc.).


I don’t think they have any plans to do something like that in the future as the coding for that is a bit wonky. It would also mean that they would apparently have to make all new outfits and animations for the different shapes from what I have heard.

Now, when writing you can adjust the heights using the spot director by changing the scale.

Hi guys :wave: :blush:
I have seen people have different “descriptions” for each episode of their story.
How does one do that? :thinking:


They are adding a teaser for each trailer (highlighted in yellow). The only chapter you can’t add a teaser for is your first chapter.

I would like to ask about the loop backgroungs:
Can you ever change somehow the direction it moves?
(I mean that if you just write the loop it moves to the left)

No, unfortunately you can’t :frowning:

Oh, thank you anyways :blush:

@Character spot 0.400 155 283 AND CHARACTER is idle_sad

Then I want a car overlay to enter from the left with a person in it.
How to do so? PLZ help

You need to use spot directing for this and layers.

Read this very clear guide:


Just a random question does anyone know any free aps you can use to make covers ?


On mobile I know a lot of people use ibisPaint X. On computer, I use Pixlr.
