Hello Sophie,

resent, beginners has a 40k limit per post, squeak dev has 100k.

In Squeak dev, June 24th 2007 I sent a picture subject re: Friends of

i> How do you illustrate your ideas in workspaces and Morphs? Code snippets?
i> Drawing? Browsers on objects?

everything on your list. Pictures are too big for the list, but I can
send you some by mail.  The one attached is an idea containing the how
in the graphics and the why (and part of the how) in the workspaces.

Oh and I took money for assembling the BlobMorph with the MovingEye
and let it crawl over the screen :-))

I draw GUI's by using Morphs and place notes and the names of the
widgets into it. Sometimes, as the project evolves I replace the
Morphs with the real widgets. But I stop in mid way as soon as the
"real thing" is alive enough to play with.

Sometimes I use two projects just to have the software in two
states of the GUI. Right click (Win) on the World to get the personal
menu, bottom entry is "personalise". There I enter the projects I want
to switch rapidly.
a menu add: 'the text line' translated
  target: (Project namedWithDepth 'projects name')
  action: #enter

Real fast if you disable "project zoom" in the preferences.

i> I would love to know more if you mean that literally.

literally, a popup will ask you what to do.

Works for many things (pictures, music, .st, .cs, .mcz) a try doesn't
hurt (i hope) :-)
