Fix Version/s: None
Text written on signs can ignore spacing/newline formatting under certain conditions. This might relate to
MCPE-20759, but I am quite unsure on this, and I have encountered this only on Realms so far (thus reporting under REALMS).
There is no clear situation under which the problem will occur, however when it does occur, all of the following has been observed of the affected signs:
- Newline(s)/space(s) is/are added before the affected text.
There is no space between the text; for example, Waterloo will cause the bug to appear, but Water loo will not. Formatting symbols also count as text in this case.
- The text does not overflow onto the next line; for example, if the text starts out on line 2 but more typing causes the text to go to line 3, the bug will not appear.
Video demonstrating the bug: https://youtu.be/pAyDxKMng0c
The bug has been checked to occur without any addons both server-side (Realms) and client-side. The bug may come and go without any clear explanation.
For the provided image the correctly formatted signs (centre-left and centre-right) were obtained by typing §r at the start of the sign.
