Text example bevel seems broken

Hi there! I am interested in using this example and learning how to change the height of the text…
https://threejs.org/examples/#webgl_geometry_text

However, when I go to click the bevel button, to change the bevel, which is what I think I am looking into this example for, I get the following error.

Uncaught TypeError: GeometryUtils.triangleArea is not a function
    at createText (webgl_geometry_text.html:384)
    at refreshText (webgl_geometry_text.html:443)
    at HTMLButtonElement.<anonymous> (webgl_geometry_text.html:243)

Does anyone know how to fix this? Is there a new function that has replaced this method?
GeometryUtils.triangleArea ??

Okay, this will be fixed with the next release R113. Thanks for reporting!

thanks! is there a workaround for this? Or for this … Basically I am just trying to do a very simple effect for a hover state with gsap where the text extrudes out and grows . but, are there maybe old examples of this that utilize the old version?

See https://github.com/mrdoob/three.js/pull/18442 … the text code all still works, the demo just required a change.
