It’s easy to insert a block into the middle of a large amount of code as the little arrow that pops up shows you where it will go. Brilliantly simple
So why is there not a way to simply delete/remove a block from the middle of an amount of code – right click and have a remove/delete option like there is already a duplicate option. No you can’t do that you have to remove the block in question together with all the blocks below it. Then remove all the blocks from beneath the one you want to remove. Then remove the one in question. Then move back all the rest of the blocks. So so long winded just to get one block out from within your code.
Yes I have only just started on crumble so maybe there is a reason for such a long winded way of simply removing just one block which you have put into the code to maybe help debug it and simply want to remove. You don’t want any accidental re-arrangement of the rest of your code as you drag and drop chunks of code that even go off the bottom of the screen out of sight.February 28, 2020 at 2:40 pm #21010DanielModerator
Thanks for getting in touch via the forum, we always appreciate feedback.
The Crumble software was originally designed to be very similar to scratch, and at the time, there wasn’t the option to delete from within a block of code.
However it has been added into newer versions, and it is something that we have been considering for a while. It would definitely make programming easier with longer code. It is likely that this feature will be added in the not too distant future.
For the meantime, if you drag the code from beneath the block/section you want to remove, and insert it straight above the bit to remove, the bit you want rid of will go to the end of the bit you just moved around, making it easier to remove.
I hope that this helps, but if you have any more questions, feel free to ask away!
