You need to tell as a bit more precisely what you want to do. Also, please include a bit of context in your replies. This is a mailing list, most of us do not use the web forum. E.g. earlier you wrote:

So of course you can subclass SketchMorph in a browser. "Make own subclass" changes the morph on screen to your new class. Then choose "Browse Morph class" which opens a browser on that new class. Or open a System Browser and search for your new class. Or create your new subclass right in the System Browser.

The question is, why do you want to do that? What is the result you want to have? For example, if you just want to move an image around the screen you would rather use an ImageMorph. And you normally would not subclass it but *use* it from your own code. Morphic is best used by compositing existing morphs into your own UI, not by subclassing.

So again, give us a bigger picture so we know what you want.
