RobotMesh Python Screen Printing in wingdings

Recently, I have been experimenting using sensors in RobotMesh studio in Python, but when I tried to print the word “test”, it came out in wingdings font for some reason.
Result:

I don’t know what’s wrong and I haven’t found any way to change the font in the API reference.
Ideas?

Hi.

Could you link to the project? What browser are you using?

This isn’t the exact project that I took a screen shot from, although it seems to have the same problem.

The other project just seemed to fix itself, but this one is now having the same problems. I am using chrome on a Windows 10 computer.

On a project showing the error, please open the Chrome developer tools by pressing F12 or Ctrl+Shift+I, and screenshot the “Console” tab, shown here:

Sorry, in the filter dropdown, select only Errors, like so:

FYI Frankly, this is pretty funny, I don’t know how something like this could happen by accident

If you refresh the tab and then run the program again does the Wingding text stop appearing? If the text is still there after refreshing, are there red errors in the dev tools console?

It does disappear. Any idea what could cause that? It seems so odd that the program is even capable of printing in wingdings

One of these undefined uncaught errors, I am guessing, knocked over some critical piece of RMS. Once that happens, you can see odd things. The characters look like typical Unicode junk, like if random data was written to a buffer instead of the string you wanted.
