Hide All Sprites
hide all sprites:: looks
Category Looks
Type Stack
Introduced in v121[citation needed] (2.0 alpha)
Removed in v230 (2.0 beta)

The Hide All Sprites block was a looks block and a stack block. It was only available on the stage, and would hide all sprites upon usage. It was added in an alpha build of Scratch 2.0, and was initially called "Hide All". The block was later removed in 2.0 beta because inexperienced users could get stuck trying to find out why sprites were hidden.[1]

This block can be replaced by adding this block to the stage:

broadcast (hide all sprites v)

Then adding this block to all sprites:

when I receive [hide all sprites v]

This can be also be added and used onto sprites also. However, this can take a long time to program if there are many sprites in the project.

Example Uses

  • Setting up a scene
  • Ending a game
  • Showing different project menus
