Black box text bug

What kind of device are you using?: iPad (5th generation)

1 sentence description of the problem (I was doing _________, and then __________ happened):
I was updating my announcement board, when most of the text on the screen turned into black boxes.

Steps that the Hopscotch team can take to reproduce my problem every time:

  1. Make a project with lots of text
  2. Reload the project over and over then the text will turn black.

I expected this to happen:
The text to load and look fine
But instead this happened:
The text turned into black boxes
Here’s a sweet screenshot:


Yep, this has happened before.
Something to do with text changing too many times maybe? Reload the project and it should be fine.


There’s already some topics like this

Hopefully this will get sorted out


Yes. This happened to me yesterday. But I thought it was because I had to many clones. (I was using lots of clones)


Yeah, but it happens when you reload the project to many times. And then eventually a notification pops up that says, “womp something went wrong try closing this project then reopening it.” Then if you keep workin ton it another notification pops up that says to contact Hs. I also didint have any clones in my project so i doubt it was that.

Yeah this bug is annoying

This happens right before I need to exit and reenter a project. It will survive

happens when I put so many stuff in the text for me
