Bug in text animation (version 23.1 and Beta)

I'm having a really baffling, really strange bug. I am working on a gif animation, and decided to change an otherwise finished animation from a dark background with white text to a white background with dark text. Should be simple. But when I changed the text color—and nothing but the color—now for some reason it's missing sections. 


These are supposed to read "making career-focused learning a priorirty" and "Learn more in the Hanover Research 2023 Higher Education Trends Report." As you can see, they're missing significant chunks of text.

It doesn't matter what color I change them to. If I erase the text and type it all again, the gaps appear in the same spot. Changing the actual words doesn't matter either, there will still be a blank spot in the text. There don't appear to be any masks applied. The gap still appears when I export to gif. I'm stumped.


The only animation preset I've applied is the built in Blinking Typewriter Console animation, which was working fine when the text was white. It still seems to work fine, except for skipping this random chunk of letters. 


I first made this edit in Beta, since I was working over there to see if that would fix the low memory notice I kept getting, so I figured it was a Beta problem. But when I switched back to a previous version of the file made in 23.1 and tried to make the same edit there, I got the same result. Any ideas?

Error or problem
