View Full Version : Limited space for the description of the charge meter in TF2 mini-HUD

Has anyone found a workaround for this problem?
I've noticed that putting several spaces in front of the desired description seems to fix it (the word is sightly off-centre in normal HUD but it doesn't look bad).
It works with the txt file but there is no way of sending a string like this through STS ( doesn't get converted to spaces).

Try using non-breaking spaces. Sometimes it works in cases where normal space cannot be placed.

Is there some other code for those than ?
Because this one does not become a space when placed in this particular string.
Or is it an issue with several of those in a row? (I tried with 4)

ALT+0160 does it for me.

As an alternative way you can use simple and convenient typography keyboard layout (http://ilyabirman.ru/english/typography-layout/) by Ilya Birman.
All moderators of Russian section use it because of the real en dash (there is only one dash in Russian — en dash, while English uses em dash as well) and Russian quotes.
The key for non-breaking space is Right Alt + Space.

Damn. Why didn't I think about it right away.
The regular non-breaking space does register in the strings.
Thanks a lot.
