When I choose Text tool and click at Graphics area, it seems normal at first.

I input some symbol by mouse and it went well.

But once I press Enter start another line, no matter which symbol I click,it just no displaying at the textarea,but the cursor go right however . I have to delete the "enter" and back to line 1, then I can input those symbol again.

This bug(maybe) appear in my two computers .Windows 8.1 and 10, Geogebra version 6.

Does anyone know how to fix it ?thx

I have the same problem with version 6.0.518.0-offline (which I assume is the desktop version). I have found that if the cursor is placed at the beginning of the text the symbol is created. You can then copy and paste to the location you desire. This is a lousy fix but usable for simple text. The other issue I found is that carriage return does not work either, so it is difficult to size the text note as a paragraph.

I cannot reproduce your issue on v.6.0.518 installed for Windows, but I have a different one: here are the steps to reproduce it:

- Create a new text by selecting the tool

- enter some symbols by selecting them from the dialog

- press Return key to start a new line

- select other symbols from the dialog.


No symbols are displayed, any time I select a symbol a blank space is created.


________________


Furthermore, in the online version of Classic 6, if I select a symbol from the dialog, the cursor is placed to the left of it, instead of to the right, and if I switch to a new line using the Return key, it's not possible to enter other symbols.


(Anyway I know that a new Text tool is on the way ;) )

Thank you very much.


“I cannot reproduce your issue on v.6.0.518 installed for Windows” .

My OS(Windows) language is Chinese,I have a feeling that this issue maybe associate with localization. (just guess) Unicode or character set or something else .

I have changed the Geogebra's language ,didn't work either. I didn't change OS language for testing this issue . I will try it later.


PS: another problem .(Sorry to bother).

I have already associated ggb file with Geogebra.exe ,but in order to open a ggb file, I have to open geogebra first then click menu--file---open. If I just double click a ggb file,Geogebra.exe would be open,but the file dont. (also version 6, OS language is Chinese, both happened in my two computers ) . Again,version 5 works well.

No worries about bothering. The Forum is here to help ;)


About file association: the default one is with version 5, and cannot be changed.

This has been done so users can have both versions (5 and 6) working together. Since a double click can't call 2 different apps for the same file, one version (currently, v.6) must use the File->Open procedure.

If you have both versions installed, double clicking on a file name or icon opens it in v.5.

Actually I only installed version 6, version 5 is portable .

Even I uninstalled version 6 and deleted all files of version 5 &6 .Clean register as well ,then reboot my computer.

After that,reinstalled version 6 (none files of version 5 in my PC), association problem still there.


BTY,I change my OS language to English ,can't fix text tool problem .This might be meaningless becuuse my OS is still a Chinese version Windows ,although with a English Language Pack.

Thanks for letting us know! I could also reproduce the bug - it might take a while though before the team will have time to fix this.
