Notes and Credits

notice: Some changes have been made to list watchers since this project was shared, so it might not work as intended.

Say hello to AUTOtext, possibly the fastest text engine on Scratch!

Pros:
- scrolling
- super fast
- easy to use
- advanced input
- vector graphics: great for fullscreen!
- you can highlight and copy text!
- no global variable clutter

Cons:
- only two options for textbox size
- no other color/size/font options
- must be a remix or downloaded copy of this project

Thanks to @MartinBraendli, from whom I learned how to use timer hat blocks that don't cause lag.
Thanks to @griffpatch for hacked key press booleans.

If this becomes popular, I may add utilities that allow you to use bold letters, large text (like the title screen), and shaded text.
