Hello Alice Community,

I'm pretty new to Alice (having only used it for 6 weeks), but I've just been given my first piece of formative coursework and I need to build an Old McDonald nursery rhyme. This nursery rhyme also needs to incorporate a 'telling the time' tool which will help children learn to tell the time.

What I've got in mind is at the start the user is faced with 2 buttons. The button on the left will turn left a 1/4 revolution left and their will be a farm there with a farmer who will say the lyrics to the Old McDonald's Farm nursery rhyme as it's being played. The button on the right will turn 1/4 revolution to the right to show a clock. At the moment I've just got each of the clocks saying exactly where they go (i.e 'click me to see the rhyme'). But is it possible to actually import a piece of text that will stay stationary like an imported object ?

If any of you could help, it would be great.

yes that is possible if I understand exactly what you mean. Do you want the text to stay on screen? The way that I do that is by moving the text where I want it and then go to its property's and make it a vehicle of the camera. Then go to the top right corner and tell it when mouse is clicked on text1 turn camera "direction" 14 revolution.

oh sorry I didn,t quite understand it. Yes, the 3d text will stay where you tell it to. Just make it showing:false and then when mouse is clicked on "object" set 3d text showing: true
