Hi, y'all! *wave* I'm new to this and have a question concerning the Bodnificator preset. It says "Change the default texture for your own text to do exciting title sequences." How, oh how, do you change the default texture to your own? In the help manual under "Particle attributes", it says "Textures can be added by clicking the blue folder icon."

For the life of me, I don't see a blue folder icon. Any clue would be most appreciated! Thank you.

When you click on the Particle Attributes for the effect and open them up in the Toolbox, toward the top of the controls there will be a section that lists the textures. Right above the list of textures is where you will see the folder icon, which you can use to import new textures that you have created. It seems like it might actually be yellow, not blue, though. Its the only folder icon in the Textures section of the controls, though.

For that particular preset, you'll first need to create an image file containing the text you want, with an alpha transparent background. Then delete the existing texture, and import the texture you have created.
