Full Name Spacing


#1

Hello again!

I’m trying to figure out how to make sure there is a space between the first name and last name so it displays correctly in the stat chart, but I’m not sure how to do it! I’ve included my code below and would greatly appreciate any suggestions!


*temp full_name
*set full_name Fname & Lname
*stat_chart
	text full_name Name

Thank you!

What I do is, instead of having a full name variable at all, is simply have a first name and a last name, and use them together, like so.

*create name
*create name2
*set name Bill
*set name2 Nye

And then, before putting in *stat_chart

Name: {name} {name2}

which shows up as “Name: Bill Nye”. I don’t know if that’ll help, but hopefully it does!

That looks so simple, so elegant! And yet, for some reason, I break everything when I try to implement it.


*stat_chart
	Name: ${Fname} ${Lname}

It doesn’t even load the stats at all now. :frowning:

You can actually put the Name stat (and others that are pure text like gender or something) before “*stat_chart” and it should work. So:

Name: {name} {name2}
*stat_chart
blah blah blah.

Aha! That was a silly mistake. It works perfectly now. Thanks so much for your patient help. :slight_smile:
