Have you seen this example





Could you please explain in more details what you would like to build?

No, I had not come across that example of "How to work with multiple text
morphs". I will study it and your other link.

I am starting a project (just as an example to learn Squeak) to come up
with a Yahtzee game clone. My text morphs will simply display a number that
represents a randomly rolled die. The button morphs will allow the user to
select whether a particular die is to be held from being rerolled. There
will be an additional button to allow the user to re-roll unheld dice.

I have this model working in a text-based model, but I decided to try to
re-implement it in a morphic GUI framework.

Thank you for the tips.
