setCharacter adds a character instead of replacing it

See original GitHub issue

Below is a post by Mikurox from issue 55. I have the same bug and I’m wondering if I’m misunderstanding how setCharacter should work. Documentation say ‘Replace the currently drawn character with a new one’, but instead it adds a new and disfigured character like his picture shows.

Hi guys, I totally agree with you on the above, I was going to raise the following bug when I saw this one

  • create a new HanziWriter() object to initialise it (it’s still hidden so not used yet) this.writer = new HanziWriter(characterDiv, character, { width: imgWidth, height: imgHeight, padding: 5, showOutline: true, drawingWidth: 22, // thickness of the drawing delayBetweenStrokes: 400, // milliseconds showCharacter: false, highlightOnComplete: false });
  • then later call the setCharacter method in order to really set the character we want you want this.writer.setCharacter(character);

It creates 2 ‘g’ elements in the ‘svg’ one, with a bad overriding etc. as a consequence.

It may not have been the “way to use it” but in my case I would like to initialise everything before hand before even knowing which character I want to use.

So I’m looking forward for a fix as described above, or at least a fix on the new + set -> error
