I am sorry if this has been answered 20 times before, but I couldn't seem to search the right terms to find it...
Fairly frequently I write a passage in which several things can happen, based upon conditions that need to be met or random chance. For example: If rolled 1, show "TEXT". If 2, show "OTHER TEXT". However, if Roll 2 occurs, the player sees a blank space at the top of the passage equal to the size of the hidden text that would only be revealed if Roll 1 occurred.
How can I shore up blank space/hidden text?
Edit: I found out not long after posting that bracketing the entire condition section reduces said entire section into 1 line of space if the conditions were not met. However, if you have several possible condition sections in a single passage in a row, that adds up to 1 blank line per bracketed/hidden section. So you can still end up with, say, 5 blank lines before any text (with its conditions met) appears. Is there any way to shore that up?
