    I'm trying to create a textbox that reads a string and shows it. I need to make it so it can jump to the next line if the string is longer than the box. I have followed a tutorial that uses the symbol "#" to insert line breaks manually. My problem is this is not working using GMS2 (the tutorial is in 1.4). Trying this it writes the symbol itself, instead of creating a line break. How can I insert a line break manually in GMS2? Is there another symbol? Thanks in advance.

    The new character code is \n, you can find it under the strings section of the manual.

    ^The manual is your friend. Especially "search" and "index". Get to know them and they will have your back most of the time. ;)

    you now that if you want to draw a text in a box, there is a function that handle the wraping for you ?
    draw_text_ext()

    (of course don't mind my saying if you are just doing it yourself for learning, handling wrapping is a good little exercice)
