yarn colours not showing up properly when i turn off ribbuild :(

hey there! so i’m currently writing a pattern with multiple colours. when i turn off ribbuild to see how the pattern would look for viewers, it just… i don’t even know how to describe this, all i can say is It Does Not™. see below pictures – picture 1 is in ribbuild, and picture 2 is when it’s turned off.

in ribbuild, all is well:

once ribbuild is turned off… :scream::scream::scream:

am i doing something wrong? why does ribbuild hate me :smiling_face_with_tear: all the gibberish it’s showing is not what i wrote in the pattern – i just wrote the colour name like it’s any other word, nothing special.

This is just a wild guess, but maybe go to your color selection at the beginning to see if something is up with the numbers/colors there. That definitely looks like a color code/number!

Try picking another color and see if it still happens :slight_smile:

Oo, i didnt know u can add colors like that. I just pick the colors in the material section and write (Col A)

I’m actually not sure Ribbuild would accept user-input HTML, but it would be interesting! No, what I’m thinking is that there’s something on the materials’ page that is messing this up :slight_smile:

yep, they’re hex codes for sure! but everything seems fine in the colour section. some are working fine in the pattern (like the one titled “background” is working mostly fine) but the other 6 or so colours said nope not today :woman_shrugging:

yeah, that’s exactly what i did, i just renamed the colours in the material section and wrote the names in my pattern. don’t know what happened :sob:

Odd :thinking: How does it react if you divide the rounds into half? Like, move some information to another box?
Maybe the information is too much for one line, is what I’m thinking.
I’m no real tech support, it was 10 years ago since I studied IT :sweat_smile:

i wondered that as well, but some of my rounds with less colour changes are acting up as well :frowning:

in ribbuild:

in regular viewing mode:

(it loves “background” so much, i actually think that’s the only colour that has consistently worked lmao)

Yikes, tricky! If I remember the codes right, black and white are the ones bugging out, right? Or are there more? Kind of odd if the colors that contain all color and no color are the ones not working :sweat_smile:

literally :joy: black and white are not working, and the rest are generic names for aspects that can be customized to the crocheter’s liking. i also have “blush” and “bandana” that are giving me attitude.

this is where i’m at :joy:

We’re looking into it.

It’s fixed. The issue was with using ‘BACKGROUND’ as a color name in the materials section while using the word ‘background’ (in lowercase) in the instruction section.
Since ‘background’ has another meaning when used in the instruction section, it can’t be used as a color name.
We changed that color name to ‘BACK’ in the material section and in a few instructions as an example.
Please feel free to contact us via message or chat if you have questions regarding this issue.
