I've got a scenario I would like to incorporate into a case, but as it stands now, the only way to do this (as far as I can tell) would be immensely impractical. Specifically, I would like to have text shift upwards as you would see in a chatroom or IRC or whatever. It's easiest to demonstrate this with an example:
Pretend that this charming image is the
background I plan to use in my case,
and that this block of text is the
object. I want to be able to move this
block of text up line-by-line in order to
replicate an IRC (online chat) sort of
As it stands now, if I wanted to repeatedly shift the text upwards I would need to make hundreds of objects of the block of text in different locations and reveal/hide them as the text "scrolls". If, on the other hand, there was a function that allowed me to set new coordinates for an object, I would only need one object.
Honestly, this seems to be a pretty extreme example of re-using objects and I don't see this being a highly-useful change for most people, but considering how much time and tedious work it would save me, I thought I'd ask anyway.
