Various/Other Editor problems because of memory?

    Okay, here's an odd one, and I don't know if anyone has run into it before (probably have) - if memory is low on your device / you need a reboot, does the editor behave strangely? I had something happen the other day that seemed a bit weird - working on a level, I had a slider behave like it shouldn't (see the pic). Normally in this situation, the draggable / slider would stop when it hit the curved rail, but testing it, it didn't - the draggable / slider went all the way down, as if the curved rail was straight and connected. I scrapped that level and later rebooted my tablet (Google Nexus 7 2013, completely up to date including AV), and the next time I tried it, the combination behaved as it should - the slider / draggable stopped at the bottom of the upper straight rail. Any ideas / comments?

    Hi Dave. My tablet is always low on memory, and I've had sliders pas thru B as if he wasn't there, and other sundry weirdness, but nothing like this. Weird. Do you use a PC or tablet?

    Android tablet. Not the first editor glitch I've encountered because of low memory, but definitely the weirdest.

    Same here. Weird things happen, but I do a scan often to free up storage space, memory, battery life and of course bugs. Damn thing has gotten more bugs than I have in the last 20 years!
    Actually that was a joke, but I couldnt resist...the bug part I mean.

    Do you know whether gliders passing thru B is normal?

    Definitely not normal - nothing should be able to pass through B or any other bot. Certain metal pieces can pass through other metal pieces (see the level "Pelotas Tres" by @sawdust ), but that's about it.

    I need a new tablet. Or a pair of glasses!.

    I see now. The glider only passes thru his legs. As it reaches B, he stands tall and the glider passes, but only thru his legs (he's standing on a rail).

    image.jpg I don't know but it is actually kind of "playable bug", i thought it was just some kind of tricks till now. I used this in some of my old levels and my iphone still running smoothly with some empty space in memory. Then I tried to replace the curved rail with normal rail but different direction, and it works pretty well.
