I would like to be able to move the position of each choice in the "show choices" window.

For example, in the screenshot below "Status" might be near the top, then "Workers" might be 100px below it, and so on.

I have tried using Yanfly Message Core codes, e.g \py[0] and \px[0] but it wont accept negative values to move the position up.

Has anyone got any plugin suggestions, or can create something to allow me to set the position of choices on a per-command basis? Budget available.

What are you using to get what you've already got? I don't know of any menu / choice system like that.

Rather than using negative values, it would be better to just change the top left position.

I think I've managed to find a temporary solution using https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/choice-list-position.113142/page-3 Its not exactly what I was looking for but will let me run some tests. I'll report back here

@Shaz I was using just default Yanfly plugins. You can set the Message Rows to 7 to allow grouped choices, and then its just aligned right.

Will see how I get on

That plugin allowed me to change the top left position - but it won't let me set the individual positioning of each item it seems...

I dont know but i guess you could try this:
Put many empty spaces after the first choice letters, that should result in the text being displayed more left if not centered.
For example: ( . = free space, i believe its enough when you do it in the first choice )
Status.......................................................

Edit. If you want it to be displayed differently in height, than put a transparent and empty textbox directly infront of the show choices command. That combines those, the position of the textbox than changes the position of the choices window.Both are displayed at the same time.

Edit2: Oh i seem to have missread at first.
Without Plugin you could use Pictures and create this from Scratch.
This Online Generator is helpfull to make good looking button Pictures. And Pictures can be easily placed anywhere on the Screen. We could help you with the evented menu logic.

I just can't walk to the store for lunch without walking past people smoking. It not only smells bad, it's probably poisoning me. I'm afraid I'll eventually have to be hospitalized. I can't take another path because there's too much traffic and drivers in the plaza are reckless sometimes. I almost got run over once, even after looking both ways.
