I have discovered a bug that will truncate off all but the first 100 characters in popup dialogs. The cause of the bug is that the simple popup dialog editor found within the map editor only allows a maximum of 100 characters instead of the usual 1000 characters for all dialogs.

The bug is most obvious if I created a popup dialog and used the Advanced Dialog Editor to create a dialog with more than 100 characters. Now if I then went back to the Map Editor, selected the popup dialog and click on the dialog text, the text gets truncated back to 100 characters.

This isn't a bug that is specific to a mission, I've had this happen to mine too, just never thought to report it.

Check out my Foundry missions:

Another one for the list of things to investigate.

I'm experiencing this bug as well and it's really annoying since you can't really use one page pop-up dialogs anymore.

This bug seems only to be happening when you click on a pop-up dialog on the map. If it's set up the first time (or edited from the dialog menu), it will allow the usual 1,000 character limit.

Confirmed issue and on the list. A work around is to go to the Dialogs tab to create your Map Dialogs.
