Hello, I'm trying to set up my text engine but now I have a problem.
My text engine works by drawing letters by letters in a surface.


<Create>
Message[0] = "Hello, my name is Mrs.Green"

char_x = 0 //the x position where the letter would be drawn.
message_surf = surface_create(300, 300)

_char = "" //the letter which would be drawn this time.


<Step>
if ( i < string_length(Message[0])); {
_char = string_char_at(Message[0], i)
char_x += string_width(_char)
i += 1 ;
}


<Draw>
surface_set_target(message_surf);
draw_text(char_x, 0, _char);
surface_reset_target();



Like this. It works well.

But when I add "draw_set_font(font)" in <Create>, the font get massed.
The image of font which is drawn in a surface get crashed.

Is there anyone who knows the solution of this problem?

Have you tested with various fonts? It could be that the font you are using is corrupt in some way.... However, if the font you are using is a standard font or you are sure it's fine, then you should make a sample project and then file a bug with a link to the project as using draw_set_font should not corrupt how things are displayed. https://account.yoyogames.com/report-bug

Yes, there is no problem in fonts. I tried with various fonts.
There is no problem when I draw a sentence at a time, too.

I reported this font corruption. Thank you.
