First letter of label being scaled and not moving with camera

Godot Version

4.2.1

Question

I’m working on a scoring system and the first letter of that label gets scaled and doesn’t move with the camera, reverting to the previous commit (which didn’t have this issue) doesn’t fix this.
edit: I found out what happening but not why, the first letter position is being set to (0,0) and the font size is being set to the default font size.

It might be because the anchor of the first character:

  • At first, it anchors to the camera
  • When you change it it anchors to the scene instead

this might be caused by this bug

the solution or workaround:
