How can I make a textbox meant for lore text?
I'm making some sort of a map to be used for lore. For now it is a top down look on 3D assets, and what I orriginally wanted was to create the possibility to click on menu buttons on the top of the screen that would give you categories such as: Nations, places, people, history etc. And to get a textbox on the side with information about what you selected.
The problem is that I can't seem to find any good answer on how to do this. I first thought that it would be like in UDK where you could make the HUD/Menu in flash and use it in your level, but after some searching it looks like I need ScaleForm to do this and it would require a license.
Is there any other way I can do this?
If I'm not explaining what I want good enough, think of it as a map you would have in a game and click on places to get lore text about the place you clicked. And a side menu with category buttons to add text or lore to things that can't be clicked at on the 3D map.
I'm very new to UE4 and mostly have some small experience with UDK.
