Alias the Variable Names

4 months ago

I was wondering if we could have a new parameter on the variables screen called "Alias".

If a variable name for example is "RELJAKE" = "Relationship with Jake".

Instead of putting Relationship with Jake: %%RELJAKE%% on every page, why not just allow me to fill in an "alias" for it that replaces the variable's name with the alias inside the story?

Set "Display on Page" = true and viola! 

There you have it. Variable aliases.

Thanks!

Sort of related, I always wished we could create variables as strings of text rather than just numbers. But changes to the editor itself are unlikely to ever happen at this point.

Strings are something I want to look into as well.

Alias doesn't really seem likely, as I doubt it would used enough to justify making.
