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.
