Tips

This Dialog Box has a useful counter function. It is zero when the dialog box is opened, and increases by one each time the text changes. (However, it will not increase until the frame advances). This feature is useful for keeping track of the progress of a conversation.

Note

In typing, style tags in BBText OBjects are also counted as characters.
