I've already checked the documentation and HUD tutorials, but they don't seem to cover an issue I'm having.
I have the newest version of Construct, and am trying to make a HUD for my game. This seems pretty straightforward, there are many many tutorials on the subject that all say basically the same thing. So I go to the Layout Editor, I select the layers tab, and I add a new layer to the top of the current layout.
I change the name of this layer, and then I set the Scroll X Rate and Scroll Y Rate to 0. I don't touch any other settings for the layer. Then, while I still have the HUD layer selected, I insert a text object and change it to some text. I position it within the layout, and fire up the preview.
...and there's no text on screen. It's right there in layout view, but as soon as I play the actual game it's gone.
Nothing I seem to do can make text on the top layer appear. I've made sure the background image is sent to the back and the text is sent to the front, I've made sure the opacity of the layer and the text is set to 100%, I've made sure the layer is set to transparent (you know, the setting that's supposed to make everything but the text invisible), I've made sure the layer is visible and unlocked...nothing. The only way I can make text appear on the screen is by moving it from the HUD layer on top to the layer with my background/sprites etc.
Has anyone else run into this? Is it a glitch of some kind? Or is there some setting I haven't tweaked?
