  6. 6. Naming of the parts • The next slide shows the names for some of the bits of the UI (user interface) • If I use any term which you don’t understand you must stop me and ask! • Note that the UI has a number of right-click menus; if you can’t see what you need try the right-click • You won’t see a sprite just yet but don’t worry.........
  7. 7. Saving and loading • As with most applications use the “Save” or “Save as” options to save the project • Use the “About this project” section to keep a note of what the project is about • Load projects using the “Open” option • As we work through this session you might want to save your scripts….
  8. 8. Creating a sprite Give the sprite a name At this stage you will draw your sprite using “Paint” Use “Show” (on the right-click menu) to put your sprite on the stage
