Just tried it, it looks pretty nice! I'm going to delve into the code now.
Thanks :3

BTW, it works fine in GMS2 with a single change in ts_smoothspace.gml line 8 : replacing ' with ".

typo in ts_delete_lastchar line 43 : en=crag[| 2] should be en=ctag[| 2]

Fantastic asset! A recommendation to most game creators, as it really simplifies the drawing process.

Quick question: When using ts_image - is there any way to set the image_index of the sprite being added? This would make a huge difference, as it would allow users to add variable-controlled images to the text.

I.E. if a user wanted to display a gold coin instead of a silver coin when the coin variable was > 100, for example.
