I believe this bug only affects Windows users, and may be related to Windows Unicode libraries.

Yeah, I use a Mac and I never experience this problem.

Lightnin, the wiki noob. :P
Discussions like this, about the item itself rather than the article, belong on the forums. :)

Scimonster is right, but I think Lightnin might be suggesting that this piece of information should be added to the article. ;)

I made a discussion about this on the forums. Here it is: http://scratch.mit.edu/forums/viewforum.php?id=61

It's a limitation with Windows.

Has anyone on Linux got the Disappearing Text Bug?

I just changed the main section, just as Scimonster suggested. Oh, and Scrtachers got the bug in early versions like 1.0.1. You might be right, since I got the bug on Word 2003 on a computer at BB6, classroom 110. :O

I did once get it on Linux.
People got on 1.0? This, and the note on 1.3 saying it introduced it would have to be updated. Do you have a citation though?

It appears that we've determined why the Scratch Team hasn't been able to track it down... it's not on Scratch. I know it's a bummer.

Perhaps it isn't really a "bug" at all.

no I don't have the disappearing text bug on my scratch 1.4, but I have the extremely slow rendering bug :P

What operating system do you use? I don't that I ever got it on my Scratch 1.4.

I have raspberry Pi OS

Some people are reporting a similar effect in 2.0.

Hence the template on the top of the page.

Article needs update...?

The bug is apparently still existent in Scratch 3.0. Does this need an update?

That topic does not report the same bug though - other text disappears as well as the dropdown text.

bug on Mac

I am on Mac, and the bug has claimed my new raytracer: projects:510413590. Should I make it say that the bug is also present on macOS?
