Also delete the word choice before No

That’s sad…
My friend has it and I just watch her…
Okay thank you for your help!

I notice how some “famous” authors are able to preview their unpublished chapters on (I think) mobile, and are able to see it without the “Directing Help” boxes blocking their way and therefore able to show previews. How can I do this?

All you need to do is to click on the Narration tap on the right, then click on the “Hide elements of HUD” tab to preview your story without any tool bars!

Hope this helps! :grin:

skjksdjkjdksj THANK YOU!!

So I have seen in a lot of templets, people like to use this statement “when, if, else” what is going on with that? is it a coding method?

Check out these threads:

  1. Script Symbols/Commands and What They're Used For
  2. HOW TO: Remember Past Choices (if/elif/else)
  3. The Points System
  4. Tara explains: Ifs, elses, gains, labels, gotos and the points system!

They will explain to you in detail what those are used for ^^

You can also learn about if, elif, else statements in the guides, too, and I would encourage you to watch Joseph Evans’ tutorials on YouTube as they’re great way to get started with directing.

P.S, I believe you mean then, not when.

Good luck!

thank you!

Is there anyway to zoom while a character is talking? I normally just do it before or after but it doesn’t really fit on some parts. :slight_smile:

Can use & instead of @ to zoom

Yes, just use & for zoom before the dialogue :slight_smile:
