I'm trying to figure out why I'm seeing a symbol here when checking the value of a local (.-prepended) variable.



Thanks!

An asterisk next to a "wait until var..." command usually means the parameter you're checking the variable against is invalid in some way. Like if I asked it to wait until var = abracadabra and there's no declared variable named "abracadabra". I usually see it if I'm trying to test if one var equals another but I mistype the name of the one in the "amount" box.

OK yeah, I was using "equals" instead of "equals text". Thanks.
