erratic behavior creating scenes
« on: October 04, 2021, 06:05:50 PM »
I've noticed that when I'm creating and editing scenes, weird and unpredictable stuff happens. For instance, I added a rich text component to a new scene, and when I click the middle vertical anchor box (in properties), the text vanishes from the scene stage. The text still shows in the properties panel but not on the scene stage. Sometimes it reappears if I save the changes, but sometimes not. Anyone else see this happen?

Another thing is the often position of components shown in the scene stage in the studio looks nothing like what it looks like on the tv screen. I find I have to play around and constantly upload the changes to see the actual look on the tv.

Anyone else have these problems and more importantly, have suggestions to improve it?

As far as the positioning of text when using the anchor, yes I have experienced that as well.  My guess is it is a bug.  Unfortunately, don't know of a fix at this point.  In terms of the position of components in scenes, I have not experienced that so you will have to elaborate more on exactly what is happening to you.  Typically, it has to do with the sizing and resolution of the scene, player, and the display.

thanks for the reply Topangan. I created a scene tonight and in the studio it's layout looks exactly like I want but on the TV it is way off.
I posted a couple images on imgur to show what happens...

if you are using the rich text component, check the "auto scale" box to see if that resolves the issue.
