When I make really long and annoying choices and then it’s like

mmmmmm, you have random }, but I won’t tell you which one out of 309 it is. Hmmm yes

Or this, half way through a chapter I get this shat. And it’s been happening for a week or two.


Like where’d the toolbar thing go?

Any time I get lines deleted. :disappointed:

I’d once left-clicked to open the art catalogue in a new tab, and tried to type in my script without deselecting the art catalogue button. I was looking down to type, so I didn’t notice it say “Are you sure you want to leave this page? You have unsaved changes.” By the time I noticed, it was too late, I’d already hit Enter twice as I attempted to make a new line, BOOM there go 20 lines.

Or that one time my laptop insisted on doing updates when I had unsaved changes. :sob:

Now I save all the time like:

When the previewer stops working. :hot_face::hot_face:

Or when an overlay doesn’t show up and you can’t figure out why. :cold_face:

Oh and then there’s that frustrating moment when you have the perfect background or overlay in your mind, but you can’t find the right one anywhere.:cold_sweat:

also accidentally clicking the update script button as opposed to the directing helper button and now you have to start the scene over

You can undo can’t you? As long as you haven’t saved it? I undo all the time.
