is a NewLine$ possible with a text object in tgf? Like :
+click
-set alterable string(text object) to NewLine$+"new line"
and then it will add a new line with that text?

Yeah. Try it.

If it doesn't work, create a string object that contains only a return char (that is, edit the string, delete what's there, press enter once then close it), and insert its text whenever you need a new line.

No no, Newline$ doesn't exist in TGF. You'd have to use different methods like Radix's.
I also had a method. There's an ascii (? I don't know if it's ascii actually, probably not ) character whcich represents a line break. I stored it in a txt: http://hernanzhou.googlepages.com/break.txt -> it doesnt show up in my WinXP. I could see it in Win98.
Placing this character in a string will create a line break.

the simple way of doing this is copying and pasting this: "
"

^^ copy that and paste it into your code where you need a new line.

Yeh what I used to do was use CTRL + Enter. You had to do it within quote marks though - like a string.

So Type "
Then press CTRL + Enter
Then type " again

So it would look something like:

string("Text object") + "
" + "This is my second string .etc"

 
This is a signature. Have this one on me.

No, all those things don't work in TGF. I know, because I tried to make linebreaks in TGF too.

Make a string object (String1 for example), delete what's there and press enter once (to insert the new line character).

Then go to the event editor put (for example):
+click
-set alterable string(text object) to String1 + "your text"
and then it will add a new line with that text?

So instead of a newline character, you insert the characters of your string1, which is a single line break.

They're called String objects in MMF. Are they called something different in TGF? Does it matter? Try it and see.
