**What are you trying to achieve?:**edit string contents in js code component to changed them to french from english. This is from a downloaded copy of the BART task taken from pavlovia. The original task runs perfectly in the runner, but when the text is modified in the builder the change does not manifest when the modified task is run in the runner.
**What did you try to make it work?: Modified the text in the js code component. Then tried compiling both a new python script and/or a new js script and then trying to run it in the runner. Tried running it with local js debugging mode but the experiment stayed stuck at initializing. The new compiled scripts always contain the original english strings instead of the french. This is not however the case for the strings in a text component. It is only strings contained in js code components that will not update.
**What specifically went wrong when you tried that?: The modified string is visible in the builder, but when the experiment is sent to the runner and launched the experiment runs as if no changes had been made to the code component.
There are no error messages.
