How can I get text to show up on the screen?

    Hello, the title pretty much somes up what im trying to do, new to the program and i have the cursor switch when i mouse over object areas but im making the game with no character on screen so kind of a first person view, how ever i can seem to find the option to get text to show up on the screen rather then over a characters head.

    basicly i would like to click the obj and when i do that i would like a "Chat Box" to appear and next to type into it or just appear would work as well. 

    any anyone tell me how to do this or show me a tutorial ? i cant find one of those for this either roll    Thank you, the program is so good

    Check out the miscellaneous action part category. There's an action part called "display narration text" that will allow you to select the font, alignment, & position to display the text. It's the same as "display text", except it's not tied to a character.

    Quick note: I would however recommend using script to force texts instead as it's less hassle than using narration texts & manually positioning them each time. I'm not going to explain how to do that here though, & especially now seeing as it's 2:30 am here.

    I would highly encourage you to join our Discord server as you are much likely to get faster replies to your questions than on here; or at the very least, get pointed in the right direction.
