“Exiting a variable string editor thing without pressing :white_check_mark: button causes hopscotch to act weirdly and not save the edited content (text) properly”

i’ve had this ton of times but i’m too busy to create a bug report. you can notice if you click :white_check_mark: to save your text, hopscotch will not glitch

Yeah but it erased it while I was typing, or was that because I didn’t press it before?

It still glitches if I press the checkmark

Alternate title: Text parameters sometimes forgets what you typed when typing for too long

It might be due to how UNDO and REDO works, but still, text disappearing like that is very annoying…

And I thought the “cursor automatically gets sent to the end of text if it contains an emoji” bug was bad… (luckily, the bug I just described isn’t an issue anymore…)

The text resizing bug that makes the text blurry is another bad bad bug :((

Yes it is… It’s a mystery why it’s occurring…

I did also notice the blurry text, which was discovered by Spy Guy 96. This is another bug, that I think might be related…

That’s not what I’m talking about, this is an example of what I mean

If you increase the size instead, the project will start to lag badly.

Setting the size to something smaller than 100, setting the text, then setting it back to 100 has the same effect, it gets worse the smaller the first number is. Setting the size to 101 after setting the text makes it look sharp.

It may be a text rendering error that causing it to be blurry, because if you only set a small size after setting the text, it’s as sharp as it can be. It mainly only happens when the length (width) of the text isn’t the same before the small size is set.

Hmm. It might just be an issue on iPhones. I’ve been typing a lot in parameters on my iPad, and it never glitched out / erase some text.

I just typed “random message” repeatedly.

Maybe has something to do with undo and redo

Yeah I’ve had this happen too just now while testing a single sentence — it is pretty frustrating!

I will do some more investigation and see if we can find a fix for it.

Also I noticed the gap when typing on iPhone, between the text and the buttons on the right — we will fix that too.

I can confirm this is happening — it seems to be for any text field.

Steps

  1. Open a block with a text field, e.g. Set Text, Set Variable
  2. Type in some sentences

Expected:
It saves the text after you pause for a certain amount of time (e.g. a few seconds)

Actual:
The text sometimes reverts to the state from a few seconds ago

Video

When I was typing 1-2 sentences and pausing in between, it looks like the text field will randomly revert back to a previous text state.

This happens multiple times throughout.

  • 0:15 For example, here when I type “hello world this is me life should be fun”, it temporarily reverts back to “hello world this is me life”.
  • 0:30 Also at the point of “hello world this is me life should be fun for everyone life is easy if you wear”, it temporarily reverts back to “hello world this is me life should be fun for”

I was just using the swipe since it was easier here (this is development version).

(also these are just the lyrics to “Hello World” from this old tv show Saddle Club. I always get it stuck in my head whenever I type “hello world” for testing — don’t judge me :laughing:)
