hi Bodysoulspirit thanks, but I'm using this as an image generator and so I can't do anything with the window and I can't predict if it will get short, or long text or correctly written... So I want to be able to adjust the characters to split on dynamically so that I re-size shorter text to be bigger. However whenever I try to use a "share value" as an input to the "Is Greater than" that controls the character split it cuts off some of the text, even if I don't do anything else, is there something about the flow of execution in this I need to manage? I also need that test so that if any of the sections of text in the list are as a single entry longer than my character limit they get broken up into two items in the list... can you help with that?
Thank you so much for this, I have watched some tutorials and read the manual, slowly getting it.. One question about your patch is there a way to add test for the max characters for each individual element and trim and split if necessary? e.g. right now if someone were to accidentally enter a string with 57 characters (when limit set to 50) and no space it will not be trimmed and so expand beyond the width I'm trying to restrict the content to... does that make sense? image and patch attached.
first post, I'm just getting my head around vuo so forgive me if this is very obvious and my sample patch is wrong. I would appreciate all feedback :)
I'm trying to make a comp that will take a string of various lengths up to 144 characters, and then it will break it down so that it displays shorter messages bigger and longer messages smaller, for best readability while keeping the text all within a set area of my window.
