[Bug] Grid disappears after saving

Hello,

I encountered a strange bug that I think was caused by saving my game.

I saved to Raspi0, and when the screen reloaded, I did not see the grid, even after moving the Blocks around.

Sorry if this is already tracked. I could not find any reference to it.

Screenshot:

Update: It seems like the grid stays gone after reloading my project, but Refreshing the browser fixes this, so it’s not severe.

Thanks,

The grid disappeared because the editor entered light mode - that’s a mode where some visual features are disabled to improve editor performance. It gets enabled when a compilation takes a long time (I believe ~~10 seconds).

It will go away on refresh as we don’t persist that state, but the only difference should be in visual flairs / there won’t be a difference in editor capabilities in that mode.
