Update the app you created the project on


The draft was created on an older version of Hopscotch – update the characters and the issue should be fixed. I think there may have been an ID change

I don’t see any new updates in the App Store…

Refresh it.

This happened between 3.36.0 and 3.37.0 for what I know. Any draft or project containing fullwidth shapes between these updates may have broken

Just did.


Now I’ll have to wait to see if they become monkeys lol!


Thanks for your help!

They still will because the shapes placed are from an old update, but if you replace them the issue will go away

adding this happens when project gets unpublished

That’s probably a bug that is occurring since you need to update the app.

That’s probably what I said.

Yes, the draft was created in an older version

I think this usually happens with old drafts. If you publish it, the thumbnail should be updated.

I’ve had this and I don’t really mind it since it goes away as soon as you publish it (at least it usually does for me). As for how to fix the thumbnail in your drafts, I am pretty sure you can publish and then unpublish the project.

As AE said, update the app, but I don’t know if it has been fixed or not.

Basically, only the thumbnail become a monkey, the objects don’t.
Updating the app is a solution.

This seems annoying, I’m sorry. Is it fixable? i.e. can you change the characters back into what they should be? And is it tied to a specific old . version and a specific new version? I am wondering whether this is a one-time problem we created that probably wouldn’t be worth fixing now, or if it’s an ongoing annoyance.
Thanks!

That’s okay!

Yep I can! Except for the thumbnail in drafts, it’s always a monkey

Nah, it’s all random

It depends how you look at it. Technically, it is an annoyance, but not a terrible one. It does happen multiple times with a simple fix though :smile:

Thanks!

Link us the drafts, then we can see the draft version, first object, object label, etc. That could really help with the issue :wink:
