MU-5 will crash and delete all source code

Postby BobH » Wed Jan 18, 2017 3:46 pm

If you try to display a degree sign on the MicroBit, it will crash MU and delete all source from the program source file e.g.:

from microbit import *
display.scroll("°")

As soon as you try to save it, MU5 crashes - If you had edited a previous file, it will empty it, then close it.

I think you found a bug, you should definitely report it!

The problem is not just that it is an un recognisable character for the display command, as I am trying to write "°" to a 16 x 2 LCD screen. When I lost 200 lines of code, I wasn't too happy. :x

How do I report this and to who. I opened a Github acct, but it is beyond me as to how it works. README, Forks, Commits and publish. Its a bit too tech for a schoolboy.posting.php?mode=reply&f=17&t=2920#
