Garbled Text

Post by Lewis Clark » Wed Aug 07, 2019 7:15 am

Hi Paul

I've experienced a weird problem over the years with button text changing and garbling for no apparent reason. I discovered this example today. Do you have any idea what is happening? Please see the text below the line for a specific example of what happens.

The oddest part is that the button continues to type beyond what is shown in the "text to be typed" box.

Currently using a Windows 8 desktop computer, but this also happened with previous computers using earlier Windows incarnations. A small number of buttons will garble like this every few months.

Currently using TypeItIn V 3.1, but also had this problem with previous versions of TypeItIn.

Thanks for your help!

This is what gets typed by TypeItIn by activating the button. Note the odd characters and spelling errors in the second sentence of the second paragraph, in italics.

Many people have heard of the idea of an expanding universe, but what evidence do we have to support the idea?

Albert Einstein's general relativity equations predicted that the universe could either be expanding or contracting, but could not be remaining at a constant size. He eventually adCk1°5.å@rm to hineral relativity equations to make the size of the universe constant that he referred to as the cosmological constant. In other words, he modified his equations to fit what everyone believed to be the reality of a static universe. If he had actually believed what his equations were telling him, he could have predicted the fact that the universe was expanding more than a decade before Edwin Hubble showed it experimentally.

Edwin Hubble discovered in 1929 that most of the galaxies in the universe are moving rapidly away from us. The farther the galaxy is, the faster it is moving away from us. Hubble's discovery did not include the galaxies of our Local Group of galaxies, but it applied to nearly every other galaxy known at the time. All of the observational evidence collected since 1929 supports these ideas of an expanding universe. Hubble's law uses the rate of expansion as a method of determining the distance to the most distant galaxies we can observe.

In 1998, two separate groups of scientists independently came to the conclusion that the rate of expansion of the universe was not constant. Much of their research was based on recent observations of very distant galaxies made by the Hubble Space Telescope. It turns out that the expansion rate of the universe is accelerating.

We don't know what is causing the rate of expansion to increase, but scientists have coined the term "dark energy" to represent this unknown force.

This is what I see when looking at the "text to be typed" box of the associated button. Note that the button contents just stop. Most of the button contents appear to have been removed.

It sounds like Typeitin is having issues displaying the text in the Button Edit window since the button still types the complete text.

Please try and delete the "eventually adCk1°5.å@rm to hineral relativity" part of the button and click the Close button to save the new content.

Then edit the button again. Is all the text displayed in the edit box?

Regards,
Paul.

Thanks for the reply!

Doing as you asked does not display all the text that should be there. It simply truncated everything that should be beyond that point.

Also, activating the button no longer types the text beyond the section that had been garbled.
