Updating sign text not working



  • I'm trying to update the text of signs but seem to be missing something.

    The following command will report that the sign's data was updated:

    /data merge block 3 -59 -3 {Text2:'{text:"SYSTEM STATUS:"}',Text3:'{text:"Busy"}'}
    

    Unfortunately the text on the sign doesn't change, neither does the data of the block (F3+I)



  • The values of Text1, Text2, Text3 and Text4 are supposed to be JSON. This means that you should use quoted key names.

    So this:

    {text:"SYSTEM STATUS:"}
    

    Should be changed to this:

    {"text":"SYSTEM STATUS:"}
