    Greetings,

    I'm having a little bit of a problem creating a GUI box with multi line text. I've tried what was suggested in this thread: http://forum.unity3d.com/viewtopic.php?t=7826&highlight=gui+multi+line+text

    But good old "/n" does not create a new line for me. Also, using Alt+return gives me the following error "error BCE0044: expecting '"', found '\n'." instead of giving a new line.


    This is my code:
    Code (csharp):
    1.  GUI.Box(Rect(0,Screen.height - 60,Screen.width,60), triggerText);
    where triggerText is a string.

    Newline is "\n". Alt+return makes a newline when entering text in the Inspector; you wouldn't want to do that in scripts.
