Code not running in blocks view, but will run after pressing show text



Several students have had no code running when in blocky view in this section. However, when we switch to text view, the code runs fine. Is anyone else having this issue?


I have had problems with the code running in both text and block on several of the unit three tasks… In the short term, I have students go to another drawing screen to accomplish the given task.


@slooowlearner and @sean.jackson thanks for raising this issue! I’ll pass it along to the right people! Also, this would be a great “report a bug” event. There should be a button in the top right hand corner of the screen for students (or teachers) to report a bug. I believe that helps the engineering team identify the people and location of the issue a bit more easily.

Sorry about the confusion, though! I know these little bumps can throw things off a bit!

Thanks again for reporting this!


Hi. I’m sorry to hear this.

Would you mind either a) reporting a bug as @kaitie_o_bryan suggests or b) provide the Share link for the code that’s not working (On any one of the tasks you should a button that says “Share” in the top left of the screen. Click that button, and it presents you with a dialog from which you can copy/paste a unique link for that code (see screen shot below).

We’d love to hunt this down for you, but to do that we need to know what the “offending” code is. Provide it here or in a bug report and we’ll find it.
