It’s great to have a forum for these kinds of programming environments. I am a newbie so please bear with me while I ask my seemingly easy question.
Ok, I’m not going to explain everything that I want to do in the patch to keep things simple and just ask about my problem.
I am trying to form a group of words randomly placed on a 2d plane. I have figured the random placement part of the words but the words cannot be different from one another.
I am using Text (EX9 geometry) for the task and the words I want to be written are stored on a IOBox(string) on different columns and rows. How do I distribute them to each word so eaxh word can be different from one another?
I am still having trouble finding my way around the forum so I couldn’t find any search facility. I think I worded the question very simple but please let me know if the common way of asking question includes sending a part of the patch : )
The string input of the ex9 Text is unfortunately not spreadable, what makes the whole thing a little complicated. A possible workaround is elektromeiers EX9TextMetrics Module.
The other way is to create one ex9 Text for every word, but as you want to have a cloud, I guess you’ll have to deal with a larger amount of words, right?!
OK that went pretty well. I guess that is the solution I needed. Although I am not quite sure I know where to replace these files, under modules or effects? Yes, I know that’s a very basic question but my brain sort of stopped working at this hour, so a quick push to the right direction would be nice.
Thanks for the help
