Calling all beta editor Hopscotchers! Thoughts on the text features?

Hey Hopscotchers! :wave:

It’s been a couple months since we first released coding with text strings to the beta editor, and we’d like your feedback!

We’d love to know things like:

  • What has your experience with text strings been like so far?
  • What types of projects have you been able to build using text strings?
  • Any bugs or issues you’ve seen while using text strings that weren’t fixed in the latest version?
  • Any other feedback or ideas you’d like to share on coding with text?

Looking forward to hearing from you! :grinning:

This feature is really cool! I’ve had one issue where the blocks stopped working completely in any project I opened but 3.42.2 fixed that problem and so far I haven’t had any issues with it.

I’ve seen some users using it for dialogue and for me I’m using it to include setting your own username and save codes to enter them to “load” up a save

I don’t actually have the beta editor since I don’t subscribe but my team’s summer comp project is a beta editor project, and I could access the project through a link and could use the beta editor features. Here’s my thoughts.

it like alerts a piece of code to run

“when I get a message“ is basically “when __ is broadcasted” meaning if

when game starts {
  broadcast message hello
}

when I get a message “hello” {
  set text to “hello”
}

will set text to hello
