(Redirected from Script Area)

Archive.png This article or section documents something not included in the current version of Scratch (3.0). It is only useful from a historical perspective.
"Script Area" redirects here. For this feature in the current version, see Code Area.

The Scripts Area was an area in Scratch 2.0 on the right side of the editor where scripts could be stored. It was a slightly darker gray than the Scratch 3.0 code area.


Blocks could be dragged from the Block Palette to the scripts area to be stored and executed in a project. They could be stacked together to form scripts. If a project was saved, these blocks would remain there. At the top-right of the scripts area (and of the entire editor) there was a transparent image of the selected costume, with its X position, Y position, and direction shown.

Right-click Options

If a block in the scripts area was right-clicked, several options would appear:

  • Add Comment: Created a comment, which was attached to the block the user right clicked on.
  • Duplicate: Duplicated the script and allowed the user to place it either somewhere else within the sprite or on another sprite.
  • Delete: Only showed up on the top of a script; deleted the whole script.
  • Help: Gave information about the block the user right clicked on.

Custom block options were the same as in Scratch 3.0.
