here's some steps to follow if hopscotch bugs:
0: don't make a topic yet! follow the steps in order please
1: Wait. Seriously, sometimes this works XD
2: Exit the project and reopen it, the project itself may have bugged.
3: Check your wifi and VPN (sometimes the top left of your screen lies, open up a new webpage and see if it loads correctly)
4: Close hopscotch, wait a few seconds, then reopen it.
5: Close all the apps, then open just hopscotch.
6: Turn off your iPad (hold the power button until an option pops up to turn it off, then slide the slider) And then turn it back on, then reopen hopscotch
7: Hard reset (hold both the power and home buttons at the same time until the screen goes black), turn your iPad back on, then reopen hopscotch (you get the latest version this way)
8: Uninstall hopscotch, then reinstall it from the app store
9: Hard reset again
10: Search the forums for something that sounds like the bug you're experiencing, if you find a topic addressing your bug and there is a fix for it, do that fix. If there is no fix and the topic hasn't been posted on in a while, revive it
11: report the bug, this can either be by emailing the hopscotch team at firstname.lastname@example.org or on the forums in the new bugs category
12: Wait until hopscotch updates again
13: start over at step 1, but don't create a new topic. if the topic hasn't been posted on in a while, revive it
feel free to add any steps or edit the existing ones, I'm not the best with my wording sometimes.
