Super Message Editor
Download the ZIP file.
Within Visual Novel Maker ~ Tools -> Extension Manager -> Install -> Location the ZIP File and Select OK
This is extension provides developers the ability to use a “wysiwyg” style text editor for creating Show Message commands.
The way it works is the extension adds a command called “Show Message (Editor)”. This command is identical to the Show Message command; the only difference is a new input is available for opening the editor. Simply click on “Message Editor” -> “Open Editor”.
Upon opening the editor, any existing text will be loaded into the text area. Compatible message codes will be translated to their proper effects while other text codes will remain unchanged. Once the user completes their message, they may simply close the window. The new text will be converted back into VNM message codes and placed into the command text box. Be sure to click the command box to view the updated changes!
All the compatible effects are: Bold, Italic, Underline,
Finally, the editor also provides find, replace, and special paste functions to help with some of those special moments when you need to find, replace, or… special paste something…
• The "Show Message (Editor)" command will display the text through the command drop-down similar to how "Show Message" works normally. However, keep in mind if you edit your message through the editor, the changes will not be visible in the command text area until you focus on it (unfortunately, I have not figured out how to auto refresh it). Rest assured even if you don't update the text area, your message data will still be saved.
• If you open the text editor and your message doesn't appear, don't panic! This is a small bug that may occur (I'm pretty sure I've fixed it, but it may still pop up for different reasons). If something like this does happen, go into the main Visual Novel Maker, copy your message directly from the command itself, then close the window. It may delete your message, but you can simply paste it back it. This probably won't happen, but better safe than sorry. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
• This extension uses some abnormal techniques to create the text editor feature. While it shouldn't be a problem, let me know if you experience any performance issues. There's also no restriction to how many editor windows you may open, so be sure to close them down! Otherwise, I CAN assure you things will be messy. p:
