Hello. I am trying to show only one line of text at a time within my VN. So far, the only way I know how to do this is by creating a Show Message command for each line of text. What I'm trying to do is have only one Show Message command that displays only one line of text at a time. That is, all the lines of text are stored in only one Show Message command but only one line of text is shown, then is erased, then the next line of text is shown, then erased, etc. Has anyone figured out a better way of doing this?

Attached is a pic of the current method I'm using. Thanks in advance to those that can help.

Hi, I think you could try to use Create Message Area and Set Message Target command to create a custom message area which only has the height of one line of text. VNM has a message batching features so if your text doesn't fit into the box it is auto splitted into two messages displayed. But still one message in backlog I think.

It somewhat works. With the height of box set to the height of the text, it will show only one line of text. Then, after the user clicks. it will show the next line. However, if I program the "Show message" command to not wait for user input and go to the next line of text, it just stays at the first line after being displayed.

This is good enough for me, though. Thank you for the suggestion.
