Designer - Adding Pages and Turn To
« on: September 06, 2021, 08:52:39 PM »
You can add a page by selecting Page up the top left of the designer. Type the name for the page in the text box and click Add.




The new page will be added to the tree menu on the left and the page is ready to edit. Note that you can add the page directly to a category by selecting the category in the tree prior to adding the new page. You can always change the location/category of a page by going to the context tab and changing where it is.



To turn between pages we need to add an action to some text on the page - so that when the player clicks on the text the game engine will take them to the corresponding page.

We need to use the action button which is the one on the left, like a lightning bolt.



Highlighting some text ("visit the Dwarves") we then click the action button. The actions dialog pops up. Using the Turn To Page option we select the page to turn to from the drop down list. Click submit and it's all done. In the game when a player clicks on "visit the Dwarves" they will be taken to page 2.

I am tending to put the destination page title beside the clickable text for reference - eg "Turn to 2" - though it's not essential to do this, but it might help the player. And the pages can be named as you see fit, you needn't use page numbers. It's up to you.




The details of this action will appear in the panel to the right for your future reference - you can click on the blue link to navigate to that page. Later, when you add more pages, the inbound links ("Linked from") will show what pages link to this page. So using this action list panel you can check how pages are connected.

You can also add a range of pages in one go by using the menu button Range.



You just need to give a base name and a start and finish number.


This will generate the pages names for you.


Duplicate names are okay, but it will probably get confusing! In any case, each new page has an internal unique code, so you don't need to worry about writing over an existing page. Also to save a lot of trouble you can first select a category and that's where the new pages will be added.
