When I was working on some scripts something went wrong.
I am using different surfaces to display a text, but this surface change it's alignement depending on the content itself.

However ...

The text surface is created in on_started, like so

Code (lua) Select

self.text = sol.text_surface.create( blablabla )

There is a problem if I'm trying to change the text alignment on another function, for instance, in on_command_pressed()

Code (lua) Select

An error occurs

calling set_horizontal_alignment on bad self (string expected, got userdata))

However, self.text:get_horizontal_alignment() works ...

This is an engine bug indeed. I just fixed it, but there is no 1.5.3 scheduled for now. Il will be fixed in 1.6.
A workaround in the meantime is to create another text surface, setting the horizontal alignment at creation time.
