Not sure if this is a bug or the desired behavior, but let's say you have a string obj with some text in paragraph 1. If the string object is set to create on start and visible on start, (at runtime) the debugger shows the string as containing the contents of paragraph 1 (as expected).
Now, if you set it to "create on start" but NOT "visible on start" and you run the frame, the debugger shows the current string for the string object as blank.
Also, if you have both "create at start" and "visible at start" unchecked, and you create the string at runtime, the string will appear blank in the debugger.
I would have thought, in any case, the string object would default to containing its first paragraph's text. Is this not the behavior that should be happening? I noticed it when I was trying to populate a string with the contents of another strong that was created at runtime.
