Default A serious question, this time.

This may look like an odd thing to ask, but it would be rather useful for me to have some idea how much people would miss this feature...

I'm with New, I had no idea this was a feature!

That being said, I like it in it's current place, and wouldn't really have any use for moving it elsewhere in the game window.

The only thing I like to do is to hide it when I wish to take a better look at the CGs...

Same here.

I had no idea you could move it either.

In spite of having played dozens of these games, I must confess my ignorance regarding this text-window moving feature. How does it work, exactly?

Tested. Apparently, you click and hold the border of the text window, and you can drag it.

Gee, that's dumb. I mean, it's a big bar; where ya gonna move it to?

I've known this for half of the time I've played Kanon and AIR...'cuz I was experimenting a bit. But before that, no, I had never known it had existed.

Most of the CGs are a bit optimized so then the text bar is great where the default settings place them.

To be honest, I think the part it covers right now is the nonessential part. It's a large enough part of the view that.... putting it RIGHT on characters' faces or on settings shots? The art is kind of suited for it staying where it is. I didn't know it could be moved... such a feature would be nice to KEEP I suppose, but seriously, I knew about hiding (though I don't do it) and I don't think it'd be convenient to move it... it'd get in the way then. Hiding it for full shots sometimes, but moving it, no.

Moving the window is completely useless to me... as long as I can hide it when I want to.

Hmm, is there an option for "I like to move it about 10px down into the corner"? Voted for moving it back as the closest option; losing the ability to lose the message window would be inconsequential. Does anyone like to move it to just in front of the eyes?

Assuming you are asking because of the text layout fun - I like to change the border (to no border, option 4) too.

Keep the window where it's originally supposed to be. Much neater that way.

In much dating sims/H-games, I leave the message window where it is, as long as there's a quick shortcut button or key to hide it so I can see the 立ち絵 or CG quick.

Standard position for me. Hiding on the other hand is of course essential.
