I'm working on a new Foundry mission and I just noticed, when trying to do multiple-option dialogue, how the buttons are positioned.

I have another idea as to how they could look. Personally I think this would not only look better but be easier for the mission creator.

Instead of doing it like this...

Choice 1 >>>>>>>>>>>>> Choice 2 >>>>>>>>>>>>> Choice 3 (etc.)

I think it would look MUCH better if it was like this...

Choice 1
<branch>
Choice 2
<branch>
Choice 3

This way we wouldn't have to scroll to the edge of the screen every time we made a new choice. With a drop-down menu, we could just scroll down instead.

Anyway, it was just a small suggestion (not trying to make a petition, by no means). I hope someone agrees with my way of thinking.

Thanks for reading!

I find the benefit of the way it works now is that if I have sections of dialog that link back into each other in the branches, it is easier to make those links and construct the trees. The way you are describing would make the trees I like to make a little more complicated or difficult to construct. Although my mode of thinking could just be influenced by the way the system is built now, so who knows.
