A similar thing happened with my width slider last week while I was working on my drawing pad. Maybe it has something to do with the objects changing appearance?


Is it anything to do with your "Set invisibility to Random( .... )" block?


Nothing like that happens to me. The hopscotch team is working on fixing bugs, hopefully that fixes your problem :grinning:

Maybe, but the invisibility thing only happens once…

Yeah, that's odd.....

Maybe it's the last rule,
When 7 = 7:

Set Size...

Could be if it was a glitch, but it shouldn't make the objects flash since + 200 is there, and the rotation isn't set to anything, only increased by turns…

I've checked and it doesn't seem to be the invis. or the size...

I fixed it by deleting the

When 7=7 {

Set size

So it must be either a bug from:
A _ = _/other equality stuffs rules, Set Size, or both…


Oh yeah, definitely a bug caused by
When _ = _
Set Size

Repeat Forever stops it…


Hey, it also affects Repeats with Set Size and any other block in it…

pls notice this topic
This is ruining every single project of mine that I use effects on, which is most of my current drafts!

I try to do the Hour of Code challenge—flashing text.
I try to do a joke project—flashing objects.
I try to do a screen in an AI project—flashing text.
I try to do last week's challenge—flashing objects.
I try to do a trail art animation—flashing trail art (only when you press. it's perfect if you just watch it.)

Also, it clones the object too, or at least it seems so when it moves…



I've seen similar bugs. We are working on a fix and it should be ready next week. Sorry about that! We had to get some stuff out before the holidays but now we're ready for some major bug fixing :slight_smile:


Thanks! :D


Is there a shape block or leave a trail or anything anywhere?
Edit: nvm just saw @awesomeonion's post
