Well Dave Pitts has done it again. We had a discussion on Saturday. I told him what i needed in text, he has now released a new text engine.

Here are the changes
1) There are two tabs, one for each line of text.
2) You can now have each line of text
     a) have a separate direction
     b) a different font
     c) a different color
3) Two new direction choices.
"vertical text up:, "vertical text down". This means stacking your letters from a line of text on top of each other without rotating the text. This
was an effect requested. I need this for my sons memorial show in 2 days.
4) Changes the Top, Left 2 slider bars into a single Position Slider

I made a 5 minute video describing the new effect,

Dave left out the separate color per line. This is a one line change in the code. I felt useful,
"I am helping". I called Dave and told him i added an extra feature to his release.
I felt good  until Dave told me he left it for me to find.

Thanks Dave! Awesome work, as always

Sean and Dave, I'm still having a problem with Layering of Text and Meteors or Fire.

The new text options are great, but something is still fighting with those two effects.

Very nicely done! :) 

I tried various options as well and came up with similar problems as Jon.  When setting effect 1 to text, twinkle, tree, or spirograph if effect 2 is set to fire or meteors, the fire stops moving and the meteors don't generate correctly.  Also, text in effect 2 does not work at all.  I cannot set the font or direction. 
This may get fixed in lucky version 3.13?



we have not started debugging the interference issue. we know it ia bug.
