Jig about the wars in history

Hi, I’ve always wanted to learn more about the wars in history so I’m making a jig about them. I think the steps will work as a good timeline that I can move around or add to. I’ve only added World War One so far and kind of run into an issue I wanted to show who is in the war and how many units they have in the labels but it all just comes as a thin block of text. Can I change the formatting of the labels at all? Thanks

My Jig so far https://link.jig.space/k9Z9jKOsSY

These are the wars that i know of that I’ll be adding next

WW2 1939 - 1945
Vietnam War 1959 - 1975
Korean War 1950 - 1953
American Civil War 1861 - 1865
Boer War 1899 1902
Cold War 1945 - 1990
Persian Gulf War 1990 - 1991

That will keep me busy for a while haha but if you know of other ones ill research it and add it to.

Some of the bigger wars ill probably put more steps between to show big events, that’s what I’m thinking so far.


Hi Comrade! Welcome to the community.

I’ll check tomorrow if there is a way you can increase the width of the labels but you can format the text in labels by using a number of tags.

<br>Will start a new line of text
<b>Applies bold</b>
<i>Applies italic</i>
<u>Applies underline</u>
<size=50>Sets the size of your text to 50</size>
<color=#ff0000ff>Hex Value Red</color>
<color=red>Also Red</color>

We know this is a pain to add these tags currently but we are looking at ways to format the labels without having to type out the tags.

Let us know how you go.

Thank you the tags weren’t hard to add in. I had everything writen out in a document so I added the tags there and just copied and pasted the whole thing over to the label. I managed to get everything I wanted in without the label going off the top of the screen anymore. I found two other tags that worked <align=left> and <align=center>. I tried it on the instruction box at the bottom of the screen and the tags worked there too. I tried to match the colors of the countries and empires to the text.

here is what it looks like now I’ll try and post the label tags I added if it helps anyone else.
