Quick fixes guide
If you have another solution that's not here, please tell me.


Right clicks are in the wrong place
→ The quickest fix is to use shift-left-click instead of right click.
Toggling fullscreen (F11) might help on ChromeOS.
Reloading the project or restarting your browser may fix this, but some users have reported that this does not work.

My project won't save
→ This might just be caused by a bad internet connection, so wait a few minutes and try again.
→ If you have a large amount of data in lists this may cause the project not to save. Try emptying the lists.
→ If nothing else works, download your project so you don't lose your work.

A sprite turned into a pink rectangle
Press Ctrl-M twice (does anyone know if this is different on Mac/Linux?) to switch Stage3D off and on again.
Reloading the project may also fix this.

A variable keeps coming back when I delete it
→ Make sure there are no blocks that still reference the variable. If Scratch finds a block for a variable that doesn't exist it recreates it.
→ If it's a cloud variable, the server may be out of sync with the project. Go here.

I don't have permission to add someone to my studio
→ The person you are trying to add has not confirmed their email address, so they are not allowed to curate studios.
(technically this isn't a bug, just a badly-worded error message)

Cloud variables aren't changing
→ Cloud variables were recently changed to only allow numbers up to 128 digits, and no non-standard formats like hex or exponentials. You'll have to change your project so it doesn't use long numbers.

My project freezes when I change tabs
Toggling fullscreen or leaving and entering the editor may fix this.

Post away!

This topic is still incomplete and probably always will be, but you can help. If you know a bug which isn't on this list, post a link to a topic about it. I'll try and add them within a day or two.

There is the reoccurring one, where all the costumes/sounds of a sprite are reduced to nothing.

Warning: Complicated, and mind blowing.
Zeno's Paradox: I can prove you can't get anywhere. Before you get from where you are to where you wish to go, you first have to go halfway to the endpoint. From there, you go half of the remaining way. And halfway, on and on, but you can never reach your goal, because there will always be the smallest fraction of space you haven't gone through.
I can also prove you can't move. Similar to the above, I will use the same principals to prove you can't move. We already know that to get to your destination, you must first go halfway. In addition, before you get to the halfway point, you must first go halfway to the halfway point. And then before you get there, you must first go halfway. And on and on, you get smaller and smaller fractions of space you must first travel to. You can never move away from where you are.

I think it's been fixed but it might come back again, I've done it under Sprite Bugs.

I've requested for this to be stickied.
Just going to say, the “500 characters left” one that's listed under website glitches is a duplicate of this topic.

Is there already a bigger one or is this just a cool reload of it?

I believe there was an older one, but we assumed that most of those old bugs were fixed already.

There are a few that never really got started. There was also a big one a long time ago, but I think it was by Superdoggy who is no longer active.

That's not spam. It translates as “In the editor, an error with the selection in raster mode” - which appears to be a bug report. However, without more information, I don't think there is much we can do with it.

I noticed that many of the links provided do not really show a clear answer, or you have to look through several pages in order to find the solution. Would it be possible to make the next post down be something like showing solutions for the bugs/glitches if there is one?
Just for the simple ones, of course. Things like right click being off.

Yes, that would help. I'd like it to link to topics that explain the solution, but they're hard to find so most of them are jsut the first topic I could find about the bug.

I'll probably make a section for solutions to common bugs but I don't have time to do it tonight.

If you need help on it, I can do some as well.

The curation bar does not appear on my Scratch's front page for me, is that a problem for me or does everyone see this? XD
