Game soft locking in designer when trying to edit the craft instructions

84.3k Alisuchanka  one month ago

When I tried to edit the craft instructions in the designer, after editing I can neither test my plane nor save it. I also can't manually go to menu. I had to force close the game. Also this bug is present in mobile as well. Please fix this bugs as craft instructions is really needed especially for VR players when viewing manuals in game.

Edit: restarting fixes it but when attempting to edit the craft instructions it does soft lock again

    @PhilipTarpley probably under certain circumstances, like editing it for too long or adding too much texts idk.

    @Alisuchanka Just to be clear...this doesn't always happen for you, does it? Only under certain circumstances?

    @AndrewGarrison unfortunately i didn't saved the instructions as there's no way to save the craft when the soft lock occurs. Probably I used too many line breaks or too many texts which probably causes the soft lock. I also don't remember using special characters but I only leave blank lines for organization purposes.

    @Alisuchanka Thanks for the link! Can you copy and paste your craft instructions in a comment here or on pastebin.com so we can see what text you are using when you encounter the error? There might be a special character or maybe it's just the length that causes the issue, but if we have the exact text it might help us recreate the issue here so we can fix it.

    This happens to me if I'm editing the craft instructions for too long.

    @7 For me it sometimes adds a invisible character at the end of every line that messes up formatting, no idea why that happens.

    I haven't run into the softlock yet, but if you use too many lines on android, the keyboard system stops working correctly

    Yes, a restart fixed but when I edit my craft instructions again the soft lock persist still

    Too many symbols is what triggers it in my case
