Bug with Set Text when Original Text Contains Emoji

1 sentence description of the problem (I was doing _________, and then __________ happened):
I set a text to another text, and an emoji from the former remained.

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

  1. Create a text object that contains an emoji (not sure, but I think there has to be text both before and after it)
  2. Insert a set text block
  3. Play the project (you may have to restart it)

I expected this to happen:
The text to change to what was in the set text block

But instead this happened:
The text changed, but the emoji didn’t go away

Here’s a sweet screenshot:

And here’s a link if you want to try it yourself: https://c.gethopscotch.com/p/11jlna8z9g


I’ve seen this happen multiple times, and I think it can be fixed by inserting a blank set text block before the set text block with your new text. Also, I haven’t tried it with a blank text object with a set text block with your original text followed by one with your new text (which would probably be more organized anyways).
In other words, it’s not hard for me to avoid, but some newer users may run into this and not know how to fix it.
I did search before I posted, but if I overlooked a similar topic, I apologize.

Hmm, odd bug - sometimes the emoji appears, and when I restart again, it seems to be gone. Not sure what’s causing this though.

I tried to do this on a new project, and it did do the same thing.

It only happens about 1/5 times for me

You may need to rapidly press the restart button. :))

Yes this has happened to me. If you have a text that is a emoji then you do set text then it sometimes does that. It happens about 1/2 the time.
