I'm running Gnome Ubuntu 14.04. echo ~/documents returns the path in the terminal.

Re: Why does this not work and how can I make it work?

I'm just wondering how you are trying to implement this. The open project button triggers this function but the button itself is outside the script editor. When I played with this in the script editor it never got past the clearProject method in openProject because the block disappears I think. I al...

Some thoughts from a self directed learner

I'm the only participant so far in a self directed project but my son has expressed an interest in GP Blocks so I'm hoping to work with him on that. I have used Scratch, Snap, Squeak and Etoys before and that has been helpful but it still took me some time to grasp a few things. Many of these things...

go to and set x blocks

Hi. I am running the latest version (75) on Windows 10. I am having trouble with the values reported after using the go to and set x position blocks when x is set to zero. For example if I set x to 0 and y to 150 the instance moves to the correct location on screen but the x position reporter and mo...
