I'm a complete newbie when it comes to coding and using Twine, and I'm wondering if it's possible to show a line when the player clicks anywhere on the screen...  I'm sorry if this question was asked before but I can't seem to find it

The problem with a system like this is that its more complicated than it seems. What if the player clicks a link? Should that also make the text show up? Should it instead fire the link? Should it do both? What if the player clicks the undo or redo links in the sidebar?

Beyond that, giving us some other specifics, like where this click-text should appear, will also help.

Sorry it took me so long to reply

I'm not entirely sure how to explain this, but instead of showing the whole block of text at once when you get to that page, only 1 line shows up at first, and the player has to click anywhere to show the next line.  The link(s) should show up after all the lines have appeared, so that shouldn't be a problem.  I didn't think about the undo/redo part, but it'll be best if the player clicks the undo/redo links and it goes back to the last page.  The click-text simply just appears one line after the other at the default location.
