|I'm interested in some additional Text functions similar to to OneOf and Either.
Cycle/Loop(text1, text2, text3) : Return text sequentially, starting over once the last text has been shown.
Once(t1, t2, t3) : Non-looping cycle. Displays last item permanently instead of looping but which could be set to "".
OneOf(t1, t2, t3) : Adrift 5 already has this but I suspect that is random instead of unique random.

|The first one you describe above already exists. You right-click a text box and select the "Display Once" option. Then on the last message in the cycle you select "Return to Start".|

|If you are only creating small text effects though then a text function such a cycle or loop would improve readability during development because it would keep everything on one tab.|
