1 sentence description of the problem: I was trying to edit the string to say that Ladders were also compatible with Dirt Walls, but it deleted half of the text, and when I tried to restore it, the app crashed
Steps to reproduce the problem every time:
(Start in a blank draft if possible)
Edit a set variable block with lots of text
Try to delete a single character anywhere in the text
I expected this to happen: Only delete that character
But instead this happened: It deletes half of the string

I think I had this a few days ago.
this bug is really frequent when I code strings, but when it deleted, were you righting to the end of the line or did you go to the next line automatically? sorry if this is confusing
When going into edit mode, you are sent to the end of the string. I only showed it happening from there, but it can occur from anywhere. Not only that, the result will pretty much remain the same…
This is definitely really problematic.
I’m so sorry about all the loss of text that has happened for everyone here. I’ve logged this bug internally too – the bug report is very helpful.
I was able to test and confirm. A temporary workaround is to use the Hopscotch undo button once this happens. It’s also really problematic that the iOS undo button results in the app crashing.
I’ve just published a new project with the text isolated on its own for easier reference, if that’s ok. Please let me know if you would prefer for me to remove the text.
We’re working on a fix for this in a future update (not the one coming out very soon, but the one afterwards).
Speaking of, how soon can we except the next update. Not trying to be impatient or anything, just curious…
A few days, a week,
I definitely get being curious
The earliest would be tomorrow if it gets approved by Apple, if not then later this week.
. I have high hopes it’ll be approved very quickly.
I’ll start checking the App Store tomorrow. I already do that anyways just to ensure I’m up to date will all my apps.
This should be fixed in this update:
Get ready for a game-changer: you can now rotate your objects on stage! This will help you visualize your game better while coding on stage.
In addition, projects with the request seed blocks will no longer be automatically removed from the app. Instead, these projects will go through the filtering process similar to projects containing custom art when you publish them. Subscribers can also access their seed dashboard by logging in to
nop im pretty sure its not
however its not by deleting a character:
continue to type until you loose all your progress
That’s been happening, but it’s caused by something else.
The bug you described seems to be similar to this (so the bug that was fixed a while ago has returned):
1 sentence description of the problem (I was doing _coding, and then the variable went all weird happened):
Steps that the Hopscotch team can take to reproduce my problem every time:
Make a “Set Variable” block and put a variable in.
Start typing in the box of what the variable will be set to.
A sentence or two later and it starts glitching.
You can tell if it glitches in two ways. The text in the block looks bold and if you press save and re-enter it erases some of your work.
I expected …
It happens while typing in big text. Not even 5 characters in and it instant reverts back to the previous save.
Edit: I can’t reproduce with your steps…
