1 sentence description of the problem (I was doing _________, and then __________ happened): Whenever I use a set size block to make a text object (specifically emojis, I don’t know if it happens with letters as well) grow, sometimes they’ll grow to the size I set them, and sometimes they’ll become a lot smaller without me even changing the code.

Steps to make the problem happen:

  1. Use a Set Size block to grow an object.
  2. Play the project, and sometimes they just… shrink

I expected this to happen:
The emojis to grow to the size I set them to. (i.e. Watermelon to 800)
But instead this happened:
They shrank.
Here’s a sweet screenshot:

Edit: the emojis grew back to the size they should be at:


That’s a cool website I hope the problem fixes!


This problem has usually evolved due to a bug which some objects/or the game doesn’t load and you have to close and reopen the project.

Restarting Hopscotch works for me, I’ve recently experienced the same thing, and it mostly happens on text objects that only have Excactly just one emoji in it. (Like this :computer_mouse:)
I’m sure THT should fix it soon.
