Default Dragging print area fails - 12-11-2007, 02:08 PM

Mac OS X 10.4.11 and Alice 2.07.

Following article on:

When I put my print statements in and play my world, attempting to drag the print area and enlarge with my mouse fails.

I must have had a total loss of memory, but I don't recall saying anything about dragging the print area with the mouse to enlarge it. Can you quote the actual text so that I can do a search and find it in the tutorial?

Thanks,

Right above Figure 6, you have:

When you play your world at this point, you shouldn't see any animated penguins because you haven't written that code yet. However, a large white print area should appear on the Alice screen immediately below the World Running screen. It should contain the text produced by the print statements in your sixteen methods. (You may have to drag the borders of the print area up or down to expose all of the printed material.)

OK, now I think I understand. I believe I removed all of the print statements from my final version, so if that is what you are running, you won't see a print area below the world. In that case, insert five or six print statements in your main method and the print area with your printed output should appear at runtime. When it does, if there is too much text to fit in the default print area, there should be a scroll bar on the right. It should also be possible to grab the top of the print area with the mouse and move it up and down to make it larger or smaller. At least that is how it works under Windows XP. I don't know how it works on a MAC.

The scroll bar works. Dragging to make the area larger does not work.
