I have to have an instruction page, how do I add a text paragraph? Probably easy but can I get some direction? Thanks.

    Two ways:

    Make an image using whatever design software you prefer (e.g. Illustrator, Photoshop, etc.) and import it into GameSalad.

    Use a Display Text behavior.

    I've used Table values to display information blocks on pages- First typed out what I needed to say onto a notepad, then copy paste into a table cell -Then used a display text to display the table cell value.

    @bkhoward2001 Using an image of text as @tatiang suggested gives you good visual control across multiple screens. If you'd prefer to keep your app size slightly smaller you can do a display text behavior within an actor. Be sure to select the 'Wrap inside actor' checkbox. Place the actor into the scene and size it to wherever you want to fit your paragraph of text.
