Error in typographic measurements #103

I got this message in my scout app:

Dear developers making use of FSSM in your projects, be taking place in the new shared
guard/listen project. Please let us know if you need help transitioning! ^_^b - Travis Tilley

then, I updated my scout to latest version (0.7.1), my ruby to version 2.0.0 and installed the listen gem.
since then I'm having an annoying problem: scout is ignoring every mesurement in which there is a . (dot).
Ex.: if my font-size is 1.25em, it's rendering 1em; if the size is 0.85em, it renders 0em.

What is that about? How can I solve this?

I'm running Windows 7 Professional SP1 64bit


Hi Hugoassuncao,

Have you found some infos ?
I have the same type of issue for a while but can't manage to find a solution.

The only difference is that it is not consistant and does not affect type.
"color: rgba($brownDark, 0.6)" > renders "alpha = 0" or for easing I got "all 0s ease 0s"

When I say "not consistant" I mean that I does'nt necessarily occurs all the time.
Rendering will be fine for one property, but would break later on another compilation.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64bit
Scout 0.7.1 and Twiiter Bootstrap

Any clue is welcome,


Hi kartonnade,

I found another issue here, at github, #22.
It seems to be a problem with Sass or Compass, but no one gave a solution yet.


Thanks Hugoassuncao !


Oh, seems as if I’m not alone with this at all!!

Must be a bug in the ruby installation Scout provides – hope someone responsible will notice all of our troubles and provides a fix in the next version of Scout.

In the meantime, take a look at my little workaround I provided in issue #111: the new floatfix function. Check out comment № 2 there!
