Is there a way to get rid of the colon after the name?

I am wondering if it is possible as of 4.2 to get rid of the colon( : ) after the speaker's name?
Example:
Joe:

Hello!
Don't stress out if it's not. It's not too important. :) Any help would be appreciated, and thanks for your time.

Not in 4.2. I'll add this to 4.3, which is due out RSN.

Update: And, done. Characters and DynamicCharacters now can automatically append prefixes and suffixes to the character names and dialogue. Another thing that this can do is place the body of the dialogue in quotes.

Good luck on creating the game, and let me know (either by posting here, or by any of the contact methods listed below) if there's anything I can do to help.
