[E] Center Text 

Postby dylanm6061 » Fri Jul 14, 2017 4:47 am

Is there a way to make the text centered (like how locations are labeled, in the games)?

Not by default. Just add spaces in v6, and enclose them in an instant tag. The text that appears next will be immediately to the right of the tag.

Not the "next" update. Adding a more natural centering mode would require a large change to how AAO handles text. It would be nice to have, but not a priority.

Could be wrong, but wasn't there a way to center text in V5? Just out of curiosity, how did text handling change in The Transition?

You're wrong. There was no "natural" way to center text in v5, and because of overzealous whitespace suppression, the trick I mentioned in my post wouldn't work.

The only way to "center" text was to get several hyphens and make them as close to the background color as possible. At least, that's how I did it in V5 Turnabout Reversal.
