Timer Tutorial Issue

Hello, I’m totally new to Unreal Engine and C++ programming, although I know some C, PHP and other minor stuff.
I was trying to follow the tutorials provided in the official guide and I couldn’t get the timer to work. I’ve copied the code as it is and I managed to understand most of it but not enough to be able to troubleshoot this issue.
The compiler manages to build the code just fine but when I drop the actor in the level no text is shown, even after hitting play. Can anyone help?

Actually I managed to sort it out in the end.
I believe there is a mistake in the guide since it tells you to assign the timer as a RootComponent, which, by my understanding of what I could find online, isn’t allowed to change its shape and therefore become different instances of text. Just a guess eh, but it worked for me.
