Just Started, Can't Add Characters


I just found Tales Creator a couple hours ago, and it looks neat.

Now, in the story creator, I can do text and sorta format lines, add a background, and CREATE characters.

BUT - I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to add a character to the storyline. The character won’t drag into the storyline, and there doesn’t seem to be anything like “Add Character.”

The help videos didn’t help. :frowning_face:

Someone wanna help a noob out? Thanks! :+1:


Hey thecosmiccompanion! Welcome to Tales!

Alright, entering actors is:

(enter: ACTOR)

or multiple:

(enter: ACTORA, enter: ACTORB) etc

To get them off stage:

(exit: ACTOR)


(exit: ACTORA, exit: ACTORB)



And here is the right tutorial for that:

If you prefer the written examples → scroll down to “Stage Directions”

Hope it’ll help :slight_smile: otherwise :smiley: continue to ask :heart:

Thanks, adarkwood - the story format defaults to prose, not character portrait or whatever.

That video explained everything perfectly! Super easy to do once the format is changed. :slight_smile:

ahhhh yes, under Series Details you can switch between prose and character portraits! :smiley:

Glad you found it!
Hope now everything will run smoothly, but you’re welcome to ask any question of course :smiley:
