Bug report on scroll filter and text files


New Member
If I apply a vertical scroll to a Text resource pointing a file with more than 33 (behaviour is consistent only with this amount) consecutive line feeds, the text disappears and do not get rendered.
OBS 26.0.2 Linux
Steps to reproduce:
Create a scene with a text resource pointing a text file with 33 consecutive line feeds and some text
Apply a vertical scroll filter of speed 100, no loop

If you save the text file with say 5 consecutive line feeds all works as intended.

It’s been like this for years and years. It seems they have no interest in fixing this. If you do a search you’ll find people talking about this for a very long time. I’ve spent hours today searching again to see if there was any solution. It surely would be a 10 minute fix.
