[Bug][E][✓] Text preview completely disappears 

Message par Meph » Jeu Sep 20, 2012 12:08 pm

This only happens in Chrome.

If you tick the "text preview" checkbox, the dialogue box will completely disappear. (I need this fixed for the video tutorial I'm working on. :P )

I have only experienced it when
  • The frame in question is the last one in the storyboard, or
  • The text field is empty.

Meph, you of all people should know that such reports require a precise reference. And it's not the first time I remind you of that either...
How on earth am I to know what conditions cause this, when you don't tell me when and where it happens ?


It is perfectly normal for empty frames (or for frames containing only effect tags) since in the player the box isn't displayed in these cases either.

If it happens on frames that do contain text and should display it, then I need to know which ones !


Ganon : It always happen for the last frame of the storyboard, you say ?
Well, it doesn't happen for me, so I guess it's a little more complex than that. Could you be more specific too ? (give me a link to one trial where you noticed it, tell me what browser version you're using...)

Kroki : how randomly ? Do you mean that previewing the same frame twice (without editing it in between) can result in such an empty textbox ?

Actually it's really weird, some frames just don't display but I couldn't find any comon point, it's not that there is just a background and no character, it's not that there is a male voice, it's not that the frame ends with a [#p100]...
I don't know if it stays after saving though, I'll try it later. u_U

Actually, I'm unable to reproduce it. When I experienced this "bug", I was unaware that the frame is supposed to disappear if the text box is empty. The frame might have been empty when I encountered the "bug", I don't know -- else "unfortunately", I can't seem to find the bug again. So if I was mistaken, I'm sorry for the inconvenience. :-)

I assumed it would be easily reproducible since I was able to reproduce it consistently in certain scenarios (whilst emptying my cache to rule out other possibilities).

But recently, it happened to me when I had created only one frame in a trial and I had written in it "Hi Nick![#500][#f][#s]". But I can't reproduce it now. It just seems to crop up randomly. There's no obvious explanation. (Not that I haven't saved the trial data.) Maybe the Editor somehow assumed that the textarea was empty, even though there was text in it.

What can make a textbox appear empty is if you have a syntax error in your tags as well.

For example, note that when you use a [/#] tag (the closing tag), everything between the previous tag and this one is considered as content of the previous tag. If the previous tag is a colour tag, then this content is displayed; effect tags, however, do not display their content.
So effectively, if you write [#f]Hahahaha![/#], it's the same as if you'd just put the flash tag, and this doesn't display anything.

And note that you can't nest tags either, by the way. Like, putting a var tag inside of a colour tag won't work.

This is slightly off-topic, but exactly which tags are supported in V6?

All V5 tags are supported as is, except colour tags which are converted from the old <red></red> to the new [#instant:red][/#].
A new tag is added : [#colour:red][/#], the default colour tag for V6, which does not trigger instant text display like the V5 and instant tags do.

And, regarding effect tags, a list wouldn't be the appropriate format to describe them, I'll have to write a short tutorial to show all the possibilities.

Well, the [#color:] tags completely mess up the previously mentioned text previews. First of all, the coloured text is not displayed, and the text is typed and has typing sounds.

AND they don't seem to be displayed in the player.

I could give you a link, but it's really easy to reproduce. It doesn't seem to work at all...

GanonZD a écrit :[#color:]

[#colour:]
Write proper English and it'll work much better :-P


Regarding the text typing though, it does look like I have missed some cases in which it does start typing rather than appear instantly. I'll have a look at that.

Nice, so there ARE places on the Internet using British spelling? I like that. ;-)

However, I don't like this bug on this trial (42018) related to the colour tags. :-)

What's the problem ? Looks fine to me (in Firefox 15 at least, I haven't tested it in Chrome yet).

Sorry, forgot to mention it... the problem is that the typing sounds stop when the coloUr changes. I'm using Chrome. :-)
