More bugs with alternative descriptions?

Postby Palmer » Wed Apr 05, 2017 10:48 pm

When using alternative description on restrictions, such as when an integer variable fails, I find that the default description is never shown and instead the last alternative description is always shown. Can anyone confirm/deny this? Furthermore, If I leave the default description on a general task empty and just use alternative descriptions with restrictions, the task fails completely and is never shown. This appears to be caused by the fact that the default description is empty, which was not the case in previous versions of Adrift 5 (although was a previous bug). Again, can anyone confirm/deny this?

Can you upload an example that shows the problem.

Hi Palmer,

Are you setting the display option for the first alternative description to "Start description with:"? I find no bug with this, as per the attached demo:

I'll try to put together an example when I have the time. I solved it another way.
