This happens to my text… all the time… what am i doing wrong?
Welcome @Igor_Milosavljevic! That looks really strange, would you mind to share your
.aseprite file with us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can try to reproduce the problem? (I wasn’t able to reproduce it here, but maybe there is something specific in the sprite).
Hey I noticed the same issue as well. I’m on v 18.104.22.168
I noticed it only happens when you have a second layer and when the frame is empty (no dot inside the cell in the timeline).
So here’s a way to consistently reproduce it from a new project:
- Create a new project (any size, it doesn’t matter)
- Create a new layer
- Create a new empty frame
- Select Frame 2 from Layer 2
- Press “T” to add text, type something, and press Enter
- You should see the text appear as normal, so far so good
- Now, click on another layer or frame.
Notice the text disappears.
But, if before Step 5 you draw something in the frame so that the cell has a little dot in it, then if you add the text it works fine.
So it only happens when you have a second layer, a second frame and you try to add text on an empty frame.
Hope that helps with debugging.
A bit late to respond to this one so idk if it’s been solved yet. But it happens simply when a cel is empty, and you click the cel/frame/layer so it’s selected in the timeline, and then add the text.
I had this issue. I had to draw a dot or line on the new layer and THEN use the text tool, followed by erasing the original dot or line. Otherwise it says at 0% Opacity.
@MaryHamerMusic did you have this problem in Aseprite v22.214.171.124? because it should be fixed in that specific version (anyway it might be another unknown bug )~
I correct myself, I think this is not fixed yet.
Now yes, this bug will be fixed in v1.2.17
