I'm having trouble seeing the text I'm writing in the textbox effect for 3.2.x. After I add a textbox effect, on the right side of the editor the "Text" area allows me to write, and the text even shows up in the movie, but I can't see the actual text I am writing in the textarea as I am typing. It appears to be white text on a white background because I can highlight everything in the textarea and then it shows up.
I thought I had seen this in a previous version, but only in a particular browser. In this case I'm seeing it in all browsers. Anyone else seen this? Am I just using it incorrectly maybe?
Damn - after all the huge bugs fixed in this version, there's this tiny one! The text is indeed being specified as white by the styles and not overridden as it is in the other field controls. If you search for 'LONGTEXT' in panel.xml you'll be brought to the control tag that manifests that field. Adding forecolor='333333' like in the following field control should fix the problem. Sorry.
This seems to work.
<bar size="*" spacing="5">
<control forecolor='333333' color="FFFFFF" height="*" multiline="1" hide="timeline.selection.longtext=null" bind="timeline.selection.longtext" style='text' symbol="../../moviemasher/com/moviemasher/control/Editor/stable.swf@Field" />
