Advanced story editing
Since the formatted story area of a campaign story entry is a special type of formatted text field. There are a wide variety of formatting options that you can apply to the text in the story entry.
By default, any text entered into a story entry is considered "Body Text" format. To change format of a paragraph of text, open the radial menu, and select the "Paragraph Types" menu option. From there, select the format option you desire to use. That format will be applied to the entire paragraph.
Chat Frame: Draws a rectangular box around the paragraph for text you want to quickly drag and drop to chat window. Typically used for story descriptions and spoken dialog that will be shared with players.
Body Text: Enters normal body text mode. This is the default format mode.
Heading: Enters heading text mode. The font used for heading text is slightly larger than the body text.
List: Enters list mode. The text will shown with a small leading bullet, and the text will be indented.
Link: Enters link mode. The text will shown with a small reference link box, and the text will be indented. Window reference links from anywhere within FG can be dropped on the link box. Typically, used to link to other campaign entries relevant to the story, such as NPCs, items, etc.
Font styles can also be applied to text in the story formatted text area. Select the text that you want to style, and then press the shortcut keys for the style you want to apply. Font style can only be changed by selecting text and applying the style in this manner.
