    Hi mates,

    In a dialog, I need to adjust how long a dialog line should be appered on the screen.
    For example;

    Char: Hello. (want this dialog text to stay on screen for 1 second)

    Char_2: How are you, what u been up to? (3 seconds)

    Is it possible to do it?


    Thank yousmile

    There is the pause tag
    <p2500ms> in miliseconds or <p2.5s> in seconds
    1
    2


    Guess you could set the text speed to 0 before the specific dialog part and then use the pause tag for how long you need. But i dont know if it's possible to set speed 0 ( by that i mean that the text would be displayed 0 seconds )

    Oh great, I didn't know the pause tag! Thanks Ke4, I will use it now smile I was just adding "spaces" in order to make the text longer until then.

    By the way, just so you know, if you add an audio file in the display narration text (like a voice), the text will display as long as the audio file is playing. It's useful too.

    Oh yeah? Did you set the text speed or just used the pause tag? I don't know if it's the text time + the pause tag or the pause tag means time for the whole text part.
